(This is an updated version of my own tutorial for EE2.)

  1. Create your droplet. Name it, select your size and location, then hit the Applications tab and select (as of this writing) "LAMP on 14.04". Add your SSH key if you want, and submit.
  2. Make sure mod_rewrite is enabled, with a2enmod rewrite.
  3. If you like, increase PHP's upload_max_filesize and post_max_filesize values by editing the php.ini file, with this: nano /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini
  4. Give Apache a restart: service apache2 restart
  5. Run mysql_secure_installation. It will ask for the initial mysql root password which is saved in /root/.digitalocean_password.
  6. Log in to MySQL: mysql -u root -p (It will prompt you for your password.)
  7. Create a new user, so we aren't using root all the time: CREATE USER [NEW USERNAME]@'%' IDENTIFIED BY '[NEW PASSWORD]';
  8. Grant the new user full access: GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON * . * TO '[NEW USERNAME]'@'%';

Our favorite cruise was on the <i>Explorer of the Seas</i>, --> italicize the name of a ship
which we read about in <cite>Cruising</cite> magazine, --> reference the name of a publication
and we <em>loved</em> it. --> emphasize a feeling
(<b>Note:</b> This was before everyone got all sick --> start a note with bolded text
and was throwing up <strong>everywhere</strong>.) --> make a strong statement

Convince ExpressionEngine to show SVG thumbnails
