From SME Server
Instructions below will show you how to install both single wordpress install and Multisite. All steps build on each other, so if your ultimate goal is step C, Step A and B must be done first.
After following step(s) below you will have a fully functional Wordpress site <u>with the exception of automatic updating</u>. Automatic Updating requires FTP access to the core files. You can manage FTP access to iBays with the contrib located [[FTP Access to Ibays|HERE]]. <u>Alternatively</u>, auto updates can be left off and Wordpress system, plugins and themes can all be updated manually following instructions from [https://www.wordfence.com/learn/how-to-manually-upgrade-wordpress-themes-and-plugins/ HERE]
Instructions were originally written and tested on SME 8.x,('''*''') but should function fine in any future versions of SME Server.
* NOTE- By default SME Server does not support Wildcard Subdomains, so you will need to choose Subfolder.
If you want or need to use a Subdomain, you will need to create a custom template for SME Server to support Wildcard Subdomains.
For instructions on how to create custom template for Wildcard Subdomains, go below to PART TWO for instructions.
