Trying to set up a droplet that can support more than one Wordpress install

Posted March 17, 2015 2.3k views

I would like a droplet that can support more than one wordpress site. I was able to complete Initial set up for 14.04, and then the LEMP set up then followed this tutorial to get ready for multiple wordpress sites.

Then installed Wordpress following this tutorial (for the most part)

When I go to my droplet’s IP address, I see the NGINX is isntalled correctly.. but when I go to the webpage is not available.

nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/mccawley looks like this:

server {
root /home/mccawley/mccawley-digital;
log /var/log/nginx/;
error_log /var/log/nginx/;
include global/common.conf;
include global/wordpress.conf;

I have my wordpress files stored in /home/mccawley/mccawley-digital

If I ping it shows my droplet

No error messages in /var/log/nginx/error.log

Not sure what else to troubleshoot

Turns out it was a simple DNS caching issue. Clearing the browser “fixed” it. What an amateur!

@mccawley, I’m thinking of moving my Wordpress sites to DigitalOcean from a shared provider. Which packege do you have and how would you rate the website performance thus far?
