WordPress for Multiple Domains (2 posts)

    I have a machine running with Linode and on this machine, I want to
    host several websites/domains and use WordPress, each domain has its
    own username.

    Apache is configured so that /home/username/public is
    the root for Apache.

    How do I install WordPress so it can serve all
    the domains. Is it one install per username or a global install and
    then I just setup a different WordPress for each domain?

    You can do it two ways. You can either set up individual WordPress installations for each domain and manage them seperately. For this you'd need to set up virtual hosts in apache and have them point to each individual installation.

    The other option you can set up a single installation as a Network and use a single code base to run all of the sites. This can be easier, but there are other risks associaed with it, so it's up to you to judge which is going to work best for your situation.
