Adding site from upload

1. Create a WordPress files .tar.gz

Create a compressed tar archive of your entire WordPress directory.

sudo tar --create --gzip --file /tmp/wordpress-files.tar.gz /path/to/wordpress

2. Create a WordPress database dump

Create a MySQL dump using the mysqldump program.

mysqldump --single-transaction --skip-lock-tables wordpress >/tmp/wordpress-database.sql

Optionally, you can compress this file using the gzip command.

gzip /tmp/wordpress-database.sql

This will compress the file and rename it to /tmp/wordpress-database.sql.gz

3. Add a site and upload files

After adding the domain and creating DNS records, select the Upload tab and these files to create your new site.
