Parent article: Attacks against WordPress installations
If you had a WordPress package, it would install to something like /var/www/wordpress. But lo and behold, you host two sites, so you put them in /var/www/site1.com and /var/www/site2.com
Requiring multiple physical copies of the same code in order to run multiple instances is rather silly.
If you insist on doing it that way, then yes, distro packages will be hard to use--but, then, *any* sort of upgrading will be hard in an environment where you're scattering random php code all over the filesystem.
