Multiple WordPress instals

  • # July 23, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    I was wondering if it is possible to have two separate WordPress installs, using two separate databases, in their own sub-directories?

    The reason I ask is because I am developing a site for a client who only has WordPress installed for his blog and not the rest of his site. So I want to install WordPress in a new sub-directory while I develop his new site. I have done this, but once I did his original WordPress site went down, and when I try to login it redirects to the new install.

    Thanks for your help.

    To my knowledge this can be done doing 2 installs in different folders: all you have to do is name :
    database1 –>wp_whatever
    database2–> wp_whatever_different
    Hope this helps

    of course it can be done!

    Ok, this is what I thought. I have a client who hosts with ADDR, and when they setup the second database and I did the install, the first site went down.

    Thanks for your help.
