awsI’ve been working on getting wordpress multisite up and running on my new Amazon server. Configuring the Vhost and the multiple domain plugin was a little tricky, but it all seems to be working fine now.
To give you an idea, I now have six different wordpress instances running on this server. I have five regular wordpress installs and one wordpress multisite install.
Originally set up the server as one ec2 instance and one RDS instance. While this makes the site more reliable and faster in has also almost double the cost of the server. The cost for my RDS is more expensive than the cost for the ec2. Right now I am on track to exceed $30.00 per month for my server.
If the cost become a concern in the future, I will create to in my SQL instance within the ec2 server. This will tax the ec2 to the server more but eliminate the RDS costs.
