Someone created for me a droplet with these settings:
1 GB Memory / 20 GB Disk / AMS2
this person always created new wordpress websites for me, at the moment I don’t want to bother him I wanted to do it by myself, so I added a domain from gandi and this is what I see:
I don’t know what it means, I don’t know how to make it wordpress, there are no other domains in the domains list but I do have a lot of wp websites on this droplet for sure, just don’t know how did he set them up :(

Anyone who could help?

Each website with it’s own domain name will likely have a configuration file located in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

Copy one of these for your new site, update the domain name and directory path and make sure you drop the relevant wordpress files in place. You will also have to add a new database to your db server for the new site. This guide will walk you through those steps.
