Question

Is it possible to host multiple domains/ Wordpress sites in the One-click app Wordpress??

If I’m trying to host multiple sites on a single droplet, would it be better to use the One-click apps Wordpress 4.7 on 16.04 or the LAMP on 16.04?

Both will allow you to host multiple sites – the main difference is that the one-click will pre-install your first WordPress instance, whereas with the second, you’d need to set this up on your own.

To run multiple sites on a single droplet (regardless of which you choose) you’d need to create a new VirtualHost for each site. A VirtualHost block tells Apache what port to listen in on, what domain you’ll be using, where to look for files, etc.
