How to add a new Drupal site (multisite)

Assume:
new site=drupalen.net
name servers=ns1.drupalvaluehosting.com & ns1.drupalvaluehosting.com

(replace as necessary)

  1. use registrars DNS to point name servers for drupalen.net to ns1.drupalvaluehosting.com & ns1.drupalvaluehosting.com (allow up to 24 hours to propagate)
  2. use cPanel | Domains | Parked Domains and created drupalen.net
  3. use cPanel | Files | File Manager to create /www/sites/drupalen.net and /www/sites/drupalen.net/files with write permissions (0777)
  4. use cPanel | Databases | MySQL Wizard to create database, user & give ALL permissions (take a note of details)
  5. browse to drupalen.net/install.php and follow all instructions (note superuser password & email etc)
  6. use cPanel | Files | File Manager to remove write permissions to /www/sites/drupalen.net (0755)
  7. use copy /www/sites/default/default.settings.php to /www/sites/drupalen.net and rename it settings.php
  8. use cPanel | Email Management Tools to manage email for superuser@drupalen.net, forwarding works.
  9. browse to drupalen.net and use. That's it, Drupal away!
