iRedmail and Wordpress, on same domain and same droplet?

I’ve read up on iRedmail and would like to install that for my mail server. The domain name that I own is for a specific profession and I would like to provide both an email account and a community/blog. For email accounts I’m thinking of iRedmail and for community/blog I’m thinking of Wordpress/Buddypress.

Now, how do I structure droplets and domain names to be successful? I read that I should name the droplet to the same name as my domain name for iRedmail setup, but does that affect the Wordpress setup?

I’m new to this so every bit of information is helpful :-)

Hi @thomasfbg,

It’s not a problem hosting two applications on one domain. The only thing you’ll need to do is edit your configuration file. Depending on the WebService, you’ll have a different config in a different place which is edited differently. Usually the two most used ones are either Apache or Nginx. To understand which one you are using, you can ssh to your droplet and type in

netstat -tulpen | grep 443

See what it returns, is it httpd/apache2 or Nginx? Based on the result you’ll know what WebService you are using. Once you do, if you need further assistance, let us know what it is and I’ll further assist.
