Can I install, configure and use wordpress to build a website on elementary OS? Please let me know. Thanks.
I'm assuming that you want to set up a local development environment for WordPress. If you want to set up a public web server, I'd recommend using a server-oriented distribution, or going with a hosted service such as WPEngine or Digital Ocean.
You could set up WordPress directly on Elementary, but it's easier and arguably a little cleaner to set it up inside a virtual machine. To do this:
- Open Software Center.
- Search for and install Virtualbox.
- Search for and install Vagrant.
- Follow the instructions in "The first Vagrant Up" to install VVV, an open source WordPress Vagrant configuration. Start with step 4. (You've already done the first 3 steps!)
