  1. Thanks for this tutorial, Chris. I was just wondering, do you have any tips for helping to “harden” the web server? I guess I’m a tiny bit paranoid and wish to deter would be intruders …

    1. Hi Ben,

      The Nginx configuration is already very lean and should be secure (barring code vulnerabilities – remember to keep Raspbian and WordPress updated!).

      However, you will get lots of bruit-force login attempts though the standard WordPress Log In page. I decided to use a Google Authenticator plugin to enable two-factor authentication.

      Kind Regards,
      Chris.

  2. Excellent tutorial!
    I’m getting blank page with index.php like but not when i remove “!–” to
    What would be the steps to add multi-site subdomain such as – http://www.example.com and wiki.example.com?

    1. Hi idris,

      Thanks for letting me know about the “!–” for the phpinfo() page – that was a bug in my tutoral!! I’ve fixed it up now šŸ™‚

      If you have followed all the steps in the tutorial, you should be setup for multi-site subdomains. You just need to run the configuration.

      The most important steps of the tutorial for WordPress multi-site are:
      PHP step 5 – adding *.example.com to the server_name list; and
      WordPress step 17 – adding the WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE line to wp-config.php.

      This bit is from memory (I need to write a tutorial on this bit too). Log in to the WordPress Dashboard and go to Tools > Network Setup. You should have the option of creating a Subdomain or Subdirectory site install.

      Also, for a Subdomain setup to work, WordPress expects that you have DNS wildcard subdomains setup with your DNS provider.

      Hope that gets you started! šŸ™‚
      Chris
