Support » Installing WordPress » 2 domains, 1 hosting account, 2 WordPress installations

  • Hello all,
    I have a deluxe linux hosting account through godaddy.
    recently, i purchased a new domain and decided to host it in the same account as my existing WordPress installation. I called Godaddy and took care of the nameserver, etc. I created a new database, and i’m getting the “database connection error”. Anyone have any thoughts?
    thanks for your time

    You need to check your database details with GoDaddy.

    If you have Deluxe linux hosting you can have Unlimited Websites on your hosting , you need to create another folder for your second website and upload wordpress to it , and create the database manually.

    The best thing is give them a call and let them do it for you.


    If you’re still having trouble, you may need to check your Database Connection strings. You can see how to do that here:

    Also, we have 24/7 support available by phone or email:

    If you need additional assistance, they’ll be happy to take a look at the account and see what’s up.
