Does anyone know of a way to instantly setup WordPress on a unix box? I know there is an 'Instant Wordpress' for a Windows environment but any for unix?

I guess the idea would be to instantly setup a wordpress site and configure the themes and plugins so that the site is ready to for a user to use after signing up.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Most of the big hosting companies using a custom bash script to preinstall WordPress when provisioning a new hosting account or they offer a "one click install".

If your running Debian or Ubuntu you can use the WordPress package maintained by Launchpad. Then it's as easy as apt-get install wordpress

Wordpress MU maybe?

Yes, that link is outdated, but it gives the general overview of that feature.

Are you looking for something like Instant Install? It's like a one-click installer for a variety of blogging platforms/CMS's.
