Installing two unrelated WP blogs on my local host (2 posts)

    I have read through the documentation and searched Google and can't figure out how to add 2 blogs to my local server. I see how to intall 2 blogs and know how to add one to my local host, but this escapes me.

    I want to work on two unrelated blogs that will be on two different domains. I have XAMPP installed and am using Vista and already have one blog installed. It's the adding the second that I can't piece together.

    I've added the second database ot my XAMPP. I just need to know how to install WP to it and get it working.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Why are you feeling installing the second is more complicated than installing the first? Are you installing into a folder or using a virtual sub-domain on localhost? If you are installing into a folder, just load the WP files into the other folder, set up the wp-config, run the install program from wp-admin in the new folder, and you should be good to go.

    Basically, do what you did for the first install again, just in a different folder or virtual host.

    If I'm not understanding something, please explain.
