    Hi, I'm Amy.
    I'm new to centminod but I've been working with servers etc for a long time.

    Currently, I use centos web panel and looking to switch my WordPress sites to centminod.

    Do you think I can put all my sites on one vps (around 20)

    Or do I need a vps each?

    As to sharing one VPS server see FAQ item 2 covers users accounts you can't lock site accounts down to user level like cpanel/WHM as there is no 100% user isolation between site accounts on Centmin Mod.

    Pure-ftpd virtual ftp users only isolates ftp Pure-FTPD Virtual FTP Users but isn't fully jailed like cpanel/WHM as Centmin Mod is not made or setup for shared hosting like cpanel/WHM but more for usage by trusted user (myself/yourself).

    So the pure-ftpd virtual ftp user can lock that ftp user to the nginx vhost directory but because files are owned by nginx user/group, it wouldn't stop a hacker using php/file based transversal of other nginx vhosts. If you want isolation, setup 1 server for each site your want to host. It's how I usually host my centmin mod sites/subdomain sites i.e. this forum is hosted on separate server from centminmod.com site and separate server from my other subdomain sites for *.centminmod.com subdomains.

    Full chroot/jailed user/site isolation is on the long term to do list but nothing immediate is planned. There's a preview of what isolation may look like here.

    So if you find it acceptable that all sites would have access to each others files, then ok to host them all on one server. Though for wordpress, you may want separate servers.

    I have all of my sites on one vps using separate directories and individual vhost files in each, they'reeyre all mine and nobody else touches them. I don't even trust my business partner enough to give him access.
