One-Step Automated Install

We provide an installer script which install the required dependencies, before setting-up WordOps. It can be installed with the following command :

wget -qO wo && sudo bash wo

Alternative : Clone Github repository and run

git clone
cd WordOps/
sudo bash install

!!! info "Information" During the installation, you will be prompt for an username and an email address. WordOps need those informations to configure Git version control and to use it for saving server configurations. Your informations will only be stored in the file .gitconfig.
