I’ve searched high and low and can’t seem to figure this one out. I have an existing Ubuntu 14.04 server with LEMP stack and a couple of sites already working. I’ve installed EE as would like to start using it. I’ve fixed a couple of errors but am now stuck and haven’t been able to find a solution.
I have manually create the following file:
So can now log in to mysql using just “mysql”. But the setup still fails on the part where it sets up the database. First I run:
ee site create newsite.com --wp --letsencrypt --w3tc
and I get:
Running pre-update checks, please wait...

The ee.log output reads:

I’ve searched around for ages but have completely ran out of ideas. The same error keeps happening over and over again no matter what I try. Please help!
