Support » Installing WordPress » 1and1 setup

  • Resolved andrewmonks


    I have an account with 1and1, The buisness package.
    I’ve been using the detailed instal instructions on ,and made it to step two.
    As 1and1 doesn’t use cpanel, the PHPmyAdmin interface is weird, and i couldn’t make head nor tail of the shell instructions, i’m not sure how to start.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to finish setup?

  • go into the 1&1 admin and create a mysql database (you get 2 MySQL databases free), they also give you a copy of phpmyadmin to administer it there if you need it.

    then use those user name, db name, password in the wordpress install.

    I have several domains hosted with and have set up a successful WordPress installation on one of the domains.

    I now want to set up blogs on a couple other domains.

    What do you recommend? Should I install WordPress in each domain directory and create separate MySQL databases for each blog? The tech support folks said I could do that, or edit the config.php file and run several blogs from one database.

    I have tons of file storage space I’m never going to use up on my account, so space is not an issue. I’d prefer something simple to manage.

    Your thoughts!?
