[resolved] Can WordPress 3.0 run two WordPress sites on two different domain names? (4 posts)

    I heard that WordPress MU has been merged into wordpress 3.0. If I install WordPress 3.0.4 on a shared webhost running a site say "example.com". And now I want another wordpress site on different domain name say "example.net". Can that be done with one installation of WordPress on my host? Or do I still need to install two WordPress installations on my host as before?

    You still need 2 separate installations. The WP 3.x Networking option only allows you to have a number of blogs on a single domain.


  3. Actually you can run them as sites on a multisite, and use a Domain Mapping plugin to point one site at the other.

    Yes with the Domain-Mapping-Plugin which works fine so far! You only need one WP installation...
