change existing droplet to host two wordpress sites

Hello,

I’ve got my existing wordpress all setup and working right. Now I want to host another on the same droplet.

Theres guides how to do this starting from scratch, but if I want to do this for an existing site do I still follow these guides and just copy the www from the old location to the new one or can i keep the existing one and add a Second Server Block File?

i’m following this guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-server-blocks-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts

Hello friend!

You will want to set up a new Wordpress installation and create a server block for it. Each Wordpress installation will require it’s own MySQL database, so make sure you create one specifically for the new site.
