Running multiple websites
Setting up multiple websites
When you finished setting up any CMS (e.g. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.), perhaps you want a second installation of a CMS on your website. For example: you have your main WordPress website running on the URL wordpress.com, but you also want another new WordPress site on second.wordpress.org .
To do this you will need to follow a few steps:
First of all, you will need to access one of our shell servers. For more information about how to do this, you can visit: Accessing your files.
Continuing, we need to make a new directory in your homedir, next to the
www folder where you placed the first installation of the CMS. It is possible to place the new directory inside your
www folder, but we do not recommend this because it will be very confusing for later maintenance/updates.
We also recommend to name this directory to something obvious (e.g. a directory named
wiki for a wiki installation), this will help others in the future.
Next, you will need to send us an email at email@example.com to connect the new directory to a subdomain. The information you need to send us is: the path (often this will look something like this: /home/user/<your_username>/<name_of_the_directory) of the new directory, and the subdomain you want this website to be on (e.g. wiki.<your_website>.be).
When you receive a reply back from us that everything is in order, you will need to follow the steps from https://docs.ulyssis.org/Setting_up_WordPress, https://docs.ulyssis.org/Setting_up_Joomla or https://docs.ulyssis.org/Setting_up_Drupal (depending on what CMS you want to install) again, and install the new website in the right directory.
Here follows a list of things to be careful for when following all of these steps:
