It said it was successful, but the generic CyberPanel page still displayed when visiting the site.
Upon further investigation, the issue appeared to be with this command:
[email protected]:~# wp core download --allow-root --path=/home/example.com/public_html/ Downloading WordPress 5.5 (en_US)... md5 hash verified: 983821e81b5b8398469e5c1807c4abf4 PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 62914560 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 36864 bytes) in phar:///usr/bin/wp/vendor/wp-cli/wp-cli/php/WP_CLI/Extractor.php on line 101
It looks like it ran out of memory during the installation.
Let’s review the memory limit and increase it if necessary.
SSH into your server and run
wp --info to see which
php.ini the WordPress CLI is using:
[email protected]:~# wp --info OS: Linux 4.15.0-88-generic #88-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 11 20:11:34 UTC 2020 x86_64 Shell: /bin/bash PHP binary: /usr/bin/php7.4 PHP version: 7.1.33-3+bionic php.ini used: /usr/local/lsws/lsphp71/etc/php/7.1/litespeed/php.ini WP-CLI root dir: phar://wp-cli.phar/vendor/wp-cli/wp-cli WP-CLI vendor dir: phar://wp-cli.phar/vendor WP_CLI phar path: /root WP-CLI packages dir: WP-CLI global config: WP-CLI project config: WP-CLI version: 2.3.0
In the case above, it’s the PHP 7.1 ini file.
Now login to CyberPanel and go to: PHP > Edit PHP Configs.
Select the PHP version that matches what you found above.
Take a look at your
memory_limit configuration. If it says something like
60M, go ahead and increase it to
128M and click Save Changes.
After I tried to install WordPress again, everything worked as expected.
