Host with two domains, installing WP on both (4 posts)

    I am installing WP for a friend. He currently has two websites, which are both hosted on the same space. The hosting has a folder called 'domains', and then there are two folders, one for each domain. Each domain has it's own domain name URL, so it looks like two completely separate sites.

    How would I go about setting up WP so that you could go to each separate domain URL and see a different WP blog? Is it possible?

    Certainly. I have the same with three sites at BlueHost. If your host has SimpleScripts available, just tell it to install each to the correct folder, one at a time, and it will send you the logins when it is done.

    Yes, like leejosepho said, just install WP in each folder - see:

    Good information there, but you might check with your host about some if it. When I moved my primary domain into a sub-folder, I moved it *all* and changed *nothing* other than adding an .htaccess file at my root.
