      1. I tried that too but got the following now:
        Reading package lists… Done
        Building dependency tree
        Reading state information… Done
        Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
        requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
        distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
        or been moved out of Incoming.
        The following information may help to resolve the situation:

        The following packages have unmet dependencies:
        nginx-custom : Depends: nginx-common (= 1.4.1-0ppa~precise) but 1.4.4-1~precise0 is to be installed
        E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

          1. Thanks for update. I am not sure if easyengine is working for you with your custom setup. If its working its find, if its not you may need to tweak easyengine on your end or manually manage sites.

  1. Hi Rahul.
    Im learning about NGINX, Im planning to migrate mi site from LAMP to NGINX based system, so Im newby on this…
    Do you recommend install varnish and memcache over the default easyengine intallation???
    Regards.

  2. Hi Rahul,

    I really appreciate you for creating an awesome script which have increased my productivity in setting up nginx wordpress installations. I’m interested in knowing by when the mailserver will be added to this script. It will be really helpful if you can tell me how can I install a mailserver with gui in ubuntu os. Thanks!

  3. On a brand new, test droplet in Digital Ocean, using Ubuntu 12.04.3 x64, I tried the curl -sL rt.cx/ee | sudo bash and the ee system install command and received this http://d.pr/i/iqa

    any clues?

    1. Check line “Failed to fetch” from bottom. Looks like when you ran setup script, digitalocean mirror of Ubuntu packages was broken. Just run “ee system install” command again.

      If you see that “Failed to fetch” message again for any mirrors.digtialocean.com URL, please contact digtialocean support. (Most likely you won’t need to contact anybody)
