I had some issues with this version of the script, but I was able to fix them:

1) Missing directory during install on Ubuntu 18.04

Line 226; replace /etc/php/7.4/embed/php.ini with /etc/php/${PHP_MAJOR_MINOR_VERSION}/embed/php.ini

2) On Ubuntu 20.04, nginx throws bad gateway error after you restart the server (connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream)

To prevent this, add the following after line 588 service nginx start

# Enable unit service
systemctl enable unit.service

@martijnvandenboom I attempted to reproduce your issue but was unable. I'm been doing my testing on Azure, AWS and Digital Ocean using Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 instances. Can you provide some more information about the OS and Distro version being used?

FYI this doesn't work if you have a complicated WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD. I'm not sure exactly which character was messing up the script (maybe ^ or $). My workaround was to remove these characters from the password.

Edit: Same thing is true for WORDPRESS_ADMIN_PASSWORD, it doesn't save correctly :(
