How to install a WordPress multisite network on your HostPapa account

WordPress Multisite (previously known as WordPress MU) allows you to create a network of virtual blogs on a single WordPress installation. It’s commonly used in schools, colleges and other organisations to provide websites to students, enrolled members or other individuals.

A WordPress super-administrator has management responsibility for the entire network, while each site owner has administration rights over their individual WordPress blog.

The easiest way to set up a WordPress Multisite network on your HostPapa server is to install WordPress in cPanel using the Softaculous application installer.

To get started, log in to your HostPapa Dashboard.

HostPapa Dashboard

In the top navigation menu, select My cPanel.

Scroll down to the Softaculous Apps Installer section and click the WordPress icon.
