Hello World (WordPress style)

Just started using WordPress. This is my first post.

This is the stack I am using:

I am very happy  with the performance and responsiveness of the website so far. I also changed name servers so that I can use Linode’s DNS management system (which is free!).

Here are the steps which I had to take to set up the stack from scratch:

  1. Creating a 1GB Linode with Ubuntu
  2. Setting up LAMP stack
  3. Setting up WordPress
  4. Setting up DNS manager and reverse DNS

That was it!

I encountered some issues during Theme installation but setting the right permission level on directories and files recursively solved the issue.

755 for directories

644 for files

Things are working. It’s awesome!
