I have perused the docs and forums for several hours now and have not yet found a solution so I would greatly appreciate some help.
I have a single account with a hosting company. I have purchased multiple domains associated with this single account (and single server). I have been able to successfully install multiple blogs with multiple databases as described here.
I have followed the directions about giving WordPress its own directory here but this only works for one blog or the other. The other blog then has to still have a subdirectory after the domain. In other words if I redirect http://www.exampleone.com/wordpress1 to appear as just http://www.exampleone.com by modifying the htaccess file I can't also figure out how to get http://www.exampletwo.com/wordpress2 to appear as just http://www.exampletwo.com/.
Basically I have everything worked out except for clean URLs for both blogs. What I would ideally like to do is have http://www.exampleone.com/blog1/ appear as the cleaner URL http://www.exampleone.com and http://www.exampletwo.com/blog2/ appear as the cleaner URL http://www.exampletwo.com. This seems like something that should be doable but I have a bare minimum knowledge of coding beyond html. I have also looked into wordpressMu and gone as far as installing Virtual Multiblog but I couldn't get either of these to actually accomplish what I want to do.
I am a graduate student who teaches and would like to use one domain for my personal blog and another for my students so I really need to keep everything for each blog separate.
