WordPress on Lagoon#

The WordPress template is configured to use Composer to install WordPress, its dependencies, and themes.

The WordPress template is based on the boilerplate, but extended to match a standardized Lagoon deployment pattern.

Composer Install#

The template uses Composer to install WordPress and its themes.


Lagoon can support MariaDB and PostgreSQL databases, but as support for PostgreSQL is limited in WordPress, it isn't recommended for use.

NGINX configuration#

Lagoon doesn't have a built-in configuration for WordPress - instead, the template comes with a starting nginx.conf - please contribute any improvements you may find!


The Lagoon template installs wp-cli into the cli image to manage your WordPress install.
