termux is a pretty awesome way to drop into a more traditional linux shell on android

WordPress Deploy from Termux, Hilarious

WordPress Deploy from Termux

Here I am, using performing a wordpress deploy from termux. Using only my cell phone, I launch termux and SSH into my laptop. I create a linux debian virtual machine. Then I connect to that machine, update linux debian 9 aka “buster” to current, linux debian 10 aka “sid”.

LAMP Installation and Configuration from Termux

From there, I turn it into a LAMP server. This means I install Apache, MariaDB (a stand-in for MySQL) and PHP. I configure Apache for php-fpm and mpm_event (in a rough way), the I install all the PHP modules required to run WordPress.

MySQL Administration from Android Linux

I also lockdown MariaDB with mysql_secure_installation. I use mysql from command line to create a SQL database and a password protect SQL database user, give the SQL database user access to the SQL database.

I proceed to downloading wordpress and extract it to web root. I set the write file ownership and file permissions for the Apache web server. Finally, I open a browser and configure wordpress’s install script and run it. Followed by creating an administrative user. Completing the first half of my adventure doing a wordpress deploy from termux

WordPress Installation from a Mobile Phone

I forgot my wordpress administrative password. So, I backup the files and database. Power down the virtual machine. Destroy it. And then I build a new one. But, this time I upgrade linux debian 9 “buster” to linux debian 10 “sid”, or the “bleeding edge”. It’s also known as the unstable branch. I, again, turn it into a LAMP server. And, finally I restore wordpress, from the backup that I made, in the exact same way that you’d recover wordpress from a disaster. Like, if you were hacked or suffered a similar disruption.

WordPress Disaster Recovery

Essential WordPress disaster recovery. And I do it all from my smart phone, using Termux on Android.
