    So, just to clarify this, I will have to have different directories for each blog? E.g., my current blog is in http://MYDOMAIN.com/MYWP. To have a new config file, should I make a totally new folder MYWP2, and upload all files in there, and so on?

    Is it not possible to have the *same* interface to manage all the blogs and have all my users across all of them?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    I have tried following the instructions linked to above (using a separate install using the one database and changing the $table_prefix to something different) but I get an error saying that WordPress is already installed when I run the install.php

    Any ideas?

    I am trying the multi-blog install, with one database, as described here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_Multiple_Blogs

    I am unsure about 2 things:
    where do I put the second blog config file

    (it says: Upload each wp-config.php file to its specific root/installation directory, and run the installation

    my base WP install and default blog is in mysite.com/wp
    do I make a /wp2 directory and put a single file , wp-config.php in that directory? Then how do I run install? I'm missing something. Is there a line in the install script that needs to change, otherwise, how does install know what's going on?

    Upload each wp-config.php file to its specific root/installation directory, and run the installation

    You make a mysite.com/wp2 directory and put an entire new WordPress install in there, not just the wp-config.php file.

  11. Other than the fact that you blog is not powered by WordPress and that your post here is nothing but forum spam, I don't see anything wrong with it. Oh, you could improve your grammar too.
