that depends on the configuration and level of flexibility needed for each
web site.

If each web site simply needs the same Apache/PHP/MariaDB version, then I
would recommend starting out with one Jail with 20 vhosts.

Should there be a need to branch out from the standard setup then you can
always clone the jail, make the necessary amendments (e.g. MySQL instead of
MariaDB or an older/newer PHP version) and easily move the vhosts to that

Starting out with a base Jail means that you get the flexibility "baked-in"
for free without additional overhead.
