Firsts Step from Webfaction to Digital Ocean
I've just created my first Droplet for planning my move from WebFaction to DA. I would like to have a similar setup, that is a "normal user" that can create websites, databases and link domains, while all the Nginx, PHP and MySQL tasks are kept for root.
I have found this guide, Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 14.04, and they seem to propose that the "admin" user does all the work.
What are you proposing for a Droplet that will host a few different websites?
