How to install multiple apps on one Droplet [Feature Request]

I really like the ability that when I create a Droplet that I can install WordPress. However, I would like to be able to add another WordPress site to the Droplet without having to use a virtual hosting software or always having to go into the command line.

I would suggest that you redesign how your Applications work to be able to add them at any time. Adding another Application would run another install and create another virtual host file within Apache and add another database to Mysql and allow you to set the domain for that WordPress install, etc

Being able to add/edit/manage/delete Applications from the DigitalOcean Management Panel would be next big step in your services.

Right now your Droplets or sort of one-off instances that require a lot of command line or additional services to make them more manageable.

Better yet would be for you to open up the ability for others to post Applications to your Applications list. I know that allowing the settings for their application to run would be hard, but if you just had it so users would have to input json code for the settings then that would be awesome!

Eventually you would have a huge repository of users creating Applications for you and your Applications list would be massive.
