I've just signed up for DO and I'm currently trying to understand 'how stuff works' here, as I've been using only shared hosting planes so far.
Basically, what I would like to achieve (In a perfect world) would be to have next:
A single droplet with a zPanel running more than one site.
I've managed to install zPanel successfully, and to set up a part of it. What I'm currently trying to achieve though, is to have my IP point to the actual content, instead of zPanel. I would later on add the domain, as I have my live site still hosted somewhere else, and I don't want to mess with the DNS and have the site down for some time. I also want to test this around and get a hang of it, before actually hosting something live. Therefore, my main question would be next.
Is it possible to have a couple of different sites managed like this:
And having the 'domains' of those sites something like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/site_1 (where x's stands for IP). And of course, later on to substitute those 'domains' with the actual domains.
I know this is a true newbie question, but I really don't know where to start :)
Hope you guys understand!
