Almost got it.
After making those changes, I made one more change:
cp /etc/wordpress/config-sitename.org /etc/wordpress/
chown www-data:www-date /etc/wordpress/config-beta.sitename.org
But when I go any deeper than the front page, it redirects back to
index.html, just like it did when I did the much simpler "index1.php"
method earlier. Bummer.
