Hi @kvny,

There are a couple of ways to do this. Depending on what your needs are, you can do it differently. If you plan to have two separate websites in different languages, I’ll recommend creating two separate directories in which they are stored.

If you want to create a multi website, then I’ll recommend following this DigitalOcean tutorial :

Additionally, it’s really good to see this from an official entity of wordpress :

As for the know-how to do it with DigitalOcean, I’ll recommend using the Marketplace and use the one-click app for WordPress :

In 2010, WordPress released version 3.0 of its popular content management platform. Among the many improvements included in the release, the WordPress community combined WordPress MU into the main WordPress configuration. Since the change, WordPress has made it easier to create multiple WordPress sites on one server.
