installation directory question (3 posts)

    Wise-folk,
    RHEL installation on a VM, installed WP in /usr/var/www and configured correctly. Added three databases for three sites. Using Apache and Mysql.
    After some RTFM, I would like to install several sites. But apache root is holding the first site.
    1 - Should I move the first site to /usr/var/www/site1 and add additional sites as such?
    2 - How to move the site?
    3 - Or use a network and run all from one WP location? Is this best practice? Are there drawbacks to this configuration? Advantages?

    Thx,
    Harry

    1. Yes.

    2. See Moving_WordPress.

    3. Difficult to say - it depends on what you're looking for. Have you reviewed create a network?

    Thanks, there should be security benefits to having just one installation, I think. I can alias all the internal sites, so that is not a problem.
