Question

Can i have multiple WordPress installations in subfolders?

Example: - demo.com/site1 - demo.com/site2 - demo.com/site3

I’m not proposing using MultiSite… I simply want 3 different versions of my site, and I want to know if one Droplet can support this? Or should I use subdomains (site1.demo.com - site2.demo.com - site3.demo.com), each with a different/unique droplet?

If you’re not familiar with server configuration and are using the one-click WordPress droplet images, then the simplest solutions will be either to:

a) use a different subdirectory for each WordPress install (that is, don’t use subdomains, just use subdirectories), or

b) create a separate droplet for each subdomain.

Alternatively, you could use ServerPilot to host multiple WordPress sites on subdomains on a single server.
