    Created a new mysql database separate to the main Wp02 one. I then created a new directory for a separate wpress installation and uploaded all the bumf. I then tried to install wpress on this, which it refused to do and so I deleted it all. NOW when I go into my original site, it throws up the installation page thingy! HELP! Any ideas on how to avoid this?????

    Hopefully you didn't erase the original site's database. If that is the case refer to your backups or ask your host if they can restore the database. Don't do anything (i.e. more installing and deleting) until you resolve that.

    Get your first blog up and running again then review the procedures in Installing Multiple Blogs

    The original db is still there, the other one was deleted. cant work out what has changed! Unlessss i managed to copy a new version of the wp-config file into the old setup. Would that sound like a possibility?

    At present it wont let me get to the wp-admin page.

    So edit your wp-config.php file to with the correct information. Or take the wp-config.php file from your backup.
