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

March 17, 2015 760 views
WordPress LEMP Ubuntu

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.

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-single-and-multiple-wordpress-site-settings-with-nginx

Then installed Wordpress following this tutorial (for the most part)
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-with-nginx-on-ubuntu-14-04

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

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

server {
servername www.mccawleydigital.com mccawleydigital.com;
root /home/mccawley/mccawley-digital;
access
log /var/log/nginx/www.mccawleydigital.com.access.log;
error_log /var/log/nginx/www.mccawleydigital.com.error.log;
include global/common.conf;
include global/wordpress.conf;
}

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

If I ping mccawleydigital.com 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?
