How to setup a subdomain for same/current domain on my WordPress Droplet
Back in mid-October 2019, I made the jump from wordpress.com to hosting my blog on Digital Ocean using a WordPress Droplet (I followed these instructions https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/wordpress). I did not at that time setup any other subdomains or websites besides the wordpress.org site where I migrated my old blog to. Everything is working great for my blog, but I would like to host a subdomain website on the same server that is not a wordpress.org site.
I’m hesitant to create the new virtual host folders for Apache for fear that by doing so I will break the currently encryped HTTPS site for my blog. I reviewed the “How to setup subdomains with Apache on Ubuntu 18.04” which I’ve previously done on my on-premises hardware here at home. But that web server doesn’t currently host a wordpress site (so it’s not apples to apples).
Any suggestions or links to how to documents that I missed in my searching would be great!
