domain mapping with four subdomains (3 posts)

    Hello all,

    I have four wordpress installations (blogs), each on its own subdirectory. Only one is live, and I mapped its domain to subdirectory 1, so index.php and .htaccess for that first site are now in my root diectory. All good.

    Now I want my second blog to go live, but how do I do this without overwriting these files from my first blog? I read Using a pre-existing subdirectory install under http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory but got stuck after re-naming the blog in settings and now have a broken site and can't change it back.

    what shall I do?

  2. Only one is live, and I mapped its domain to subdirectory 1

    Mapped? You should have just use http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory and had the domain point to your public_html folder directly.

    Can you change the domain to point there and NOT the sub directory?

    sorry not mapped, pointed. hm i'm not sure i made myself understood.

    I own aardvark.com, which has no site attached to it. i have made four new wordpress blogs on:
    aardvark.com/apple
    aardvark.com/banana
    aardvark.com/carrot
    aardvark.com/durian

    I then bought apple.com (!), pointed it at aardvark.com/apple, and moved its index.php and .htaccess files to aardvark.com.
    Now I want to do the same with banana.com but moving the index.php and .htaccess to aardvark.com will overwrite the first files i pu there.

    what to do?

    Thanks for the reply btw, appreciate it.
