How to set up Luggage within a Wordpress root:

  • Separate the DocumentRoot(s):
    Luggage sites should be installed outside of the wordpress document root. For example, on one LAS web server, we are doing this in /srv/luggage/<deptcode>/<site>.
  • The Virtualhost should be modified to add an alias for the site under (and yet outside of) the wordpress installation.
