[resolved] Two WP Copies Both in a Separate Folder (5 posts)

    Hello Friends,

    I have an existing WordPress site on my server in a designated folder. Site and Admin, -everything works fine!
    Using my Cpanel, I need to a second (complete) installation of WordPress on the same server, but am intending on placing it into a different folder. It is of course for another website.

    My question is, if these two installs of WordPress are located in two completely different folders, do I run the risk of NOT being able to set up and log in to each of their Admin’s?

    I would only be logginig into one at any given time, but want to ensure that there would be no inherent issues.

    My instinct tells me there shouldn’t be if they are in separate folders. My mind tells me I should ask first, especially since months and months of work have already gone into the first site and it is near completion.

    Any advice, confirmation or tips would be VERY much appreciated as always!
    Many thanks in advance for your time and advice!

    David

    No. I have 3 or more WP installs running on a couple of different domains without any problems.

    Thank you Esmi, for confirming this.

    I thought it 'should be' fine too, but sometimes even when one thinks it should be fine it is good to double check in the beginning. Not after months of work get wiped out.

    It is very much appreciated indeed.

    THank you again! :o)
