I'm running a VPS with Ubuntu. I've installed the LAMP-stack, and would now like to make a couple of blogs/sites using WordPress. I'm thinking about creating new users for each blog and making a
public_html directory for each user. This way each blog could be reached with
Space is however at a bit of a premium, so I was wondering if it's possible to install WordPress only once (eg. under
/var/www/html/ or perhaps
/var/www/wordpress), and let all blogs access WordPress from there?
Of course they'd each also have a "private" directory in the
public_html for each user, for individual configurations, uploads, and so on. Each blog/user would have their own MySQL database.
Are there better ways of doing this - one WP installation, multiple blogs - that I'm missing?
Also, is it possible to use only one shared MySQL-database for all blogs? (Not that I intend to do so, just curious...)
