Vultr is at it once again with another tutorial, this time showing how to install WonderCMS on your FreeBSD server. WonderCMS is an lightweight and open source content management system written in PHP. Note that this guide was made with a FreeBSD 12 Vultr instance in mind. See the link below for the full set of instructions which includes installing PHP and Nginx.


  • PHP version 7.1 or greater with the curl, mbstring and zip extensions.
  • Web server such as Apache with the mod_rewrite module enabled, Nginx or IIS. This guide will use Nginx.

Before you begin

Check the FreeBSD version.

uname -ro
# FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE

Ensure that your FreeBSD system is up to date.
