How Do You Setup Multiple WordPress Installations on a "Wordpress on Ubuntu 12.10" Droplet?

Posted October 26, 2013 4.1k views
I have a "Wordpress on Ubuntu 12.10" droplet (512MB Ram 20GB SSD Disk) and I would like to setup more than one WordPress installation in the same "home" folder. I currently have this: /home/wordpress/public_html But I would like to have this: /home/wordpress/public_html/website01 /home/wordpress/public_html/website02 /home/wordpress/public_html/website03 ...and so on. What are the exact steps I would have to follow to do this? (assume I know nothing please). :-) Thanks so much!
