Install Cockpit CMS on Ubuntu 16.04

In this article, we will show you how to install Cockpit CMS on an Ubuntu 16.04 VPS with PHP-FPM 7.0 and Nginx. Cockpit is open source self-hosted API-driven content management system (CMS) application written in PHP. Cockpit stores the data in an SQLite database so you don’t need to install or configure a database server such as MySQL.
