How To Set Up Multiple WordPress Sites Using Multisite


thank you for the tutorial but I could not complete it entirely because when you refer to ‘How to Install WordPress with LAMP on Debian 10’ the wordpress path is /var/www/wordpress, but in this one it’s only /var/www . It’s maybe something with multisites but I could not make it work, I can create a site but when I click on it I get a this page is not working.

Have a good day!

Hi there,

With WordPress multisite you only need to install WordPress once and then add the following configuration to enable multisite:

  • In your wp-config.php file add the following:
define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
  • Then go to your WordPress admin and click on Tools and then Network Setup.

  • Once in there, follow the steps to complete the network setup.

  • Finally, update your wp-config.php file and the .htaccess file as per the instructions that you see on the screen.

Alternatively, rather than enabling WordPress multisite, if you want to have multiple separate websites, you could follow the steps here:
