Does the downloaded WordPress go into the folder of the site? (2 posts)

    When using MAMP the forums state "download WordPress" and put it in the htdocs folder. Should the new, downloaded copy of wordpress go into a folder that you have created in htdocs ie MAMP/htdocs/Name of folder/Wordpress folder or should it go in the folder by itself ie htdocs/nameoffolder/all the wordpress files or should the wordpress operating folder just go in htdocs/wordpress/the files of wordpress and you have a folder nameofyour site that is htdocs but doesn't have wordpress in it. Where does WordPress go when "you simply download wordpress into htdocs?"

    Then, if you have website 1, website 2, website 3, how does each access wordpress in regards to the config.php file?

    See what I mean? Confusing.

    Rename the wordpress folder to wordpress1 and then place it in the htdocs folder.
