Step 2: Install WordPress Multisite
Go to “Softaculous Apps Installer” and select the “WordPress” icon to initiate the installation process.
When you click on WordPress, it will automatically redirect you to the installation page => click the “Install Now” button.
Next, you will enter the necessary information for your website or leave it as default => tick the “Enable Multisite (WPMU)” checkbox to install WordPress Multisite.
- Choose Installation URL: Select the HTTP:// or HTTPS:// protocol and choose the domain for installing WordPress Multisite.
- Site Settings: You can set a name for your website or leave it as default and modify it after installation.
- Admin Account: This is the administrative information used to log in to WordPress. You can modify this information according to your needs or leave it as default and save the details.
- Note: Do not set an overly simple password. You can click on the blue key icon to use a suggested password for better security. Never use passwords like 123456 12345678 123567a
- Choose Language: You can choose the language for your website.
In the Advanced Options section, you can customize or leave as default:

- Table Prefix: Set the Prefix name in Database
Additionally, there are notifications like disabling email notifications on updates, or automatic updates for themes and plugins when new versions are available.
Next, in the Select Theme section, you can install a theme or leave it unchecked. After completing the WordPress Multisite installation, you can install themes and plugins later. To finalize, click Install to initiate the installation process.
The installation process is in progress. Just wait for a few minutes for the process to complete.
Once the installation process is complete, you will receive a successful installation notification along with the link to access the admin page.
Finally, you can start using your website and access the admin page to manage and create sub-sites with your WordPress Multisite.
