How do setup multiple WordPress Sites?
I want to setup multiple wordpress websites within single linode package. Is there any user interface by which we can do that? Please guide me.
Spin up a Linode with adequate resources (the $5/month nanode is probably not going to be adequate). Pick a common distro that will support your needs (I like Debian…you may not…but Debian certainly fills the bill).
Set up DNS for all your sites. This assumes that you already own the domain names and have them registered somewhere. Prayer would be helpful here… File a support ticket with Linode asking them to open the mail ports on your Linode if your sites are going to send/receive email.
Set up a firewall (iptables(8) on Linux) and intrusion detection/mitigation…fail2ban(1), ssh(1) keys, etc. By this point in process, the Russian/Chinese dictionary attacks have already started…
Install all the stuff you need -- LAMP, LEMP, whatev. Get certificates from letsencrypt.org & set up web server to use them properly. Make sure it all works. More prayer would be helpful here…
Follow this guide to install Wordpress Multisite: https://www.wpbeginner.com/glossary/multisite/ In your case, your "network" will be only one node/IP address.
Plug all the security holes you had to create to do the previous step.
Watch all that AdSense $$$$ come a-rolling in…
Thanks for the reply. I seen an option in marketplace. It allows me to install cpanel. How it will help us regarding site management? And can we have separate cpanel for each websites?
I generally regard cpanel as something you use when you want to re-sell capacity on your Linode. I may be wrong but, if that's the case, I don't see how it's going to help you at all.
Regarding your second question, read the paragraph above again.
Yes when we will develop a website we want to create a cpanel for that website and sell hosting to the client. Is that possible?
I saw a StackScript in Linode's cloud manager called "cyberpanel" that might interest you:
I would never suggest using a panel of any kind.
I would highly suggest just learning how to use Apache and/or NGINX (I prefer NGINX due to generally better performance), and just run your sites directly on the webserver.
Not only will you not have to pay for a panel (cPanel and most other panels cost money), but you will save on overhead and will learn a thing or two along the way.
Look into the LEMP (Linux, NGINX, MariaDB, PHP) stack, that would be ideal for your use-case. You can also look into easy-engine, they provide a 2-command WordPress on NGINX install.
If you are planning to resell each site, I would suggest putting each instance on it's own server so one user who gets a DDOS attack or traffic spike doesn't make all the other client's websites slow.
There is a WordPress one-click app, but I believe it is a bit out of date, so I would suggest just using EasyEngine to create an image, then save that image and use it to re-create as many Linodes as you need in the future.
