Hi everybody, I’m really new to VPS and only have some experience with CPanel, so maybe my question is stupid, but I read every tutorial available, and I still can figure out how to solve my problem.

I want to install two WordPress websites on the same droplet with Ubuntu 16.04.01.
I was suggested to use VestaCP to manage it, and somehow I succeeded in installing one of the websites. Now I want to go for the second one.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:
-installed VestaCP
-created one domain and one DB for one of the sites
-installed WordPress in the public_html folder using FileZilla
-exported to the new WordPress installation the website (files and database) using a plugin called Wp All-In-One Migration

Now I am stuck: could you please help me understand what should I do to install the other website? Where should I put it?

Thanks!

You can add new domains by logging in to VestaCP, clicking on Web, and then finally clicking on the green + icon. Each domain that you create will have a home directory created for it below the home directory of the user you’re logged in as.

For instance, if you’re logged in as admin, this users home directory is:

/home/admin

and each domain that you create as that user will be located in:

/home/admin/web

So, for example, if you created domain01.com as the admin user, that domains home directory would be:

/home/admin/web/domain01.com

… and you’d want to upload your files (i.e. WordPress) to:

/home/admin/web/domain01.com/public_html

Once your domain is setup and you’ve uploaded your files to the proper directory, you would then need to create a database for your WordPress instance.

From the VestCP control panel, you’d look back to the top navigation where you clicked on Web and instead click on DB, click the green + icon, and fill out the details for the database you want to create. You’ll use that information when you run the installer for WordPress.
