Multiple Wordpress sites with different domains

July 1, 2013 6.2k views
I tried this guide (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-multiple-wordpress-sites-using-multisite) but I can't figure out how to set different domains. I also prefer having separate Wordpress installations. Should I just copy Wordpress into different folders (e.g. /var/www/blog1, /var/www/blog2) and then configure multiple sites on Apache? Thanks.

You should follow this: http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/
Download this plugin: WordPress MU Domain Mapping

However, if you want separate WordPress installs, then you should not be using WP Multisite; and simply install separate WordPress installs in different subfolders.

Yes, exaclty. I do the same with my Drupal sites here on DO, and at work on our dedicated servers with a mix of Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla and static sites.

WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that can be used to quickly launch blogs and websites. In this guide, we will discuss how to launch two separate blogs, each associated with their own domains, from one VPS.
