LEMP with multi-user and multi WordPress installation.

What I’m looking to achieve is simple. I want to replicate what shared web hosting servers are doing.


  1. I want to create users (based on domain names);
  2. Each user has an FTP account (locked to its home directory);
  3. Each user has a public_html (or whatever else) folder (to be rendered by nginx);

Is this possible?

Yeah it is possible. Personally I would go with CentOS but if you want to go with Ubuntu I suggest you to use zpanel.
