One domain, Two Blogs, Different Directories (5 posts)

    Is it permitted or possible to have WordPress installed in ONE place on my domain, but then have TWO separate blogs, with their respective themes and files in separate directories on that same domain?

    Sure. Put the WordPress files in two separate folders under your web-root folder. Say you put them in folder1 and folder2 so you then can access them as yourdomain.com/folder1 and yourdomain.com/folder2.

    Also see Installing Multiple Blogs. If you are going to be using the same database for both installs, you will need a different $table_prefix in each installs wp-config.php file.

    I'm not sure if I'm using the same database or not - not even sure what the database is for. Yikes, I'm sure you didn't want to hear THAT. I'm not a programmer, and I'm poking along very slowly trying to pick up where my web master left off before business took a dive. What is the DB for, and do I have to do anything in particular with it?
