How to Add Multiple WordPress Sites to Unbuntu 14.04 w/LEMP?

Hey Guys,

Finally decided to take the leap and learn how to setup a server via command line. I’ve successfully got my server up and running on Unbuntu with LEMP and PHPMyadmin installed thanks to all of the amazing tutorials here.

Any recommendations or someone willing to spell it out?

Thanks in advance!
