Multiple domains on one server (2 posts)

    I'm completely new to WordPress and just about to install it, however, I have several domains hosted on one server. Do I need to create a separate WordPress installation within each domain, and do I need a separate MySQL database for each, or can I use just one WordPress installation in the root directory and one MySQL db?
    I suppose this boils down to: Can I run several different blogs on one installation?

    Check out: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_Multiple_Blogs
    and note the section under SINGLE DATABASES.

    You can have many blogs using only ONE database, but the tables must be unique, and the link above will explain how to do that.
