wordpress on two different domains with two different themes, on the same server (8 posts)

    I'm not sure if I am using the right nomenclature. But I am trying to get islandnine.com (I deleted the index.php file in the meantime to get that under construction page up) But the problem has to do with the config.php I am rather new at this. I have wordpress installed on the main domain http://www.desertraceboston.com and http://www.islandnine.com is pointed at that site. I would like to install wordpress for that domain and use a totally separate theme,totally separate content etc.

    When I open http://islandnine.com/wp-admin/install.php it already tells me I am installed and then directs me to a login page where I have to log in with my ID and PW and then ultimately directs me to my http://www.desertraceboston.com WP Dashboard.

    What do I have to do to make this work? Is it possible? Do I have to create a new MySQL database? (not that sharp on MySQL but can figure it out I'm sure).

    Thank you. Please help, I really want to fix this.

    I don't think nomenclature is the right nomenclature. :)

  3. You want to run two different domains off of one install of WordPress?

    1) Turn desertraceboston.com into a MultiSite

    2) Add on Domain Mapping

    3) Call it a day.

    I figured it out! I just had to make another MySQL database and connect it to the config file. Thanks!

  5. Sure or that. But that's not MultiSite. That's just ... multiple separate WordPress installs.

    So here's a question, if you plan to use that plugin to for multisite and multidomain management how should you set up the WP multisite installation. There are 2 options - subdomains or subdirectories... Or does it not matter since you'll be mapping to domains in the end?

  7. If you're mapping the domains in the end, - what format you pick is irrelevant.

    As I expected. Thx.
