WordPress Standalone Package
The WordPress Standalone package has an efficient single node topology based on the Virtuozzo Application Platform certified LEMP (Linux + NGINX + MariaDB + PHP) template with a set of built-in advanced features. The packaged structure makes this solution optimal for running small- and medium-size projects and development environments that do not require scalability or high availability.
WordPress Standalone Specifics
The WordPress Standalone package offers the following features:
NGINX Web Server
NGINX is a fast and lightweight HTTP server that is widely used by developers across the world. It is highly customizable due to the modular structure, which simultaneously allows utilizing just the required functionality, ensuring efficient resource usage.
Virtuozzo Application Platform customizes NGINX to provide an optimized PHP application server fully compatible with the platform functionality.
The popular MariaDB database server is employed to store website content. The default values of configuration parameters were changed to ensure the highest possible performance. You may see these values in the sqldb config file.
Redis is a non-relational high-performance DBMS. Redis stores all the data in the RAM as key-value pairs. It is used as an object caching solution. This approach provides performance that is much higher than the performance of relational DBMSs.
CDN Add-On is an optional feature that can be integrated into the WordPress application. It utilizes a highly interconnected global network with massive bandwidth capacity, advanced static assets caching, and high-speed modern HTTP/3 support, which ensures lightning-fast content loading for WordPress sites. Virtuozzo PaaS customers get premium traffic for the same price across all continents and countries with no surprising bills based on geographic locations.
Let’s Encrypt SSL
Let’s Encrypt SSL Add-On does the routine yet important system administration tasks of issuing trusted SSL certificates, integrating them into the application server, and enabling fully automated certificate renewal to stay secure over time.
