    Hi all,

    I downloaded XAMPP and developed a WordPress site on my PC. I now want to develop a separate, non-related WP site on my PC. I have no idea how to go about doing this. Do I have to delete the existing WordPress installation of my first site (if so, do I just delete those folders and delete the mySQL table?) or can I do another WordPress install and use the existing mySQL database architecture to define another database table for the new site? I’d like to have both sites available for local development.

    What to do, and more importantly HOW to do it??
    Thanks for any and all help!


    You should try to google wordpress multiple user account. I know that at one point, I wanted a blog with some friends and it was a multiple user account that solved the problem.
