Support » Installing WordPress » Double install of WP for two blogs

  • Hi everyone. I am new to this so I may be doing something obviously wrong but I could use some help. I am trying to do a double install of wordpress so I can work on two seperate blogs on my home computer. I have an install of WAMP2. I installed wordpress following the site instructions. It is working fine. I tried to install a second copy of wordpress but I can not get it to work. I redownloaded it in another file, renamed it and then copy/pasted it into my phpadmin www file. I can see it next to my wordpress file. I renamed it wordpress2. Below I will include both the first and second wp-config.php files. I will also include the phpadmin config.php file. The database, database user, and password used in both files are in the MySql. Both databases were successfully created and the user listed was added. I can see wordpress2 in My Projects when I go to local host. I can click on the first one(wordpress) and it brings up the site and I can work on it, no problem. When I try to click on the wordpress2 I get a 404 error. I am not sure what I have done wrong. If anyone could help I would surely appreciate it. Thanks.
    wordpress wp-config.php file;

  • Well I said I was new. Apparantly the files I was including was too much and they were cut out. I don’t know how to do the wordpress way of posting them or putting them at a certain URL. At any rate, In both of the files it shows the appropriate database, database user, and password. They are different in both configuratiion files and match what I created in my phpadmin when I went to local host and clicked phpmyadmin. I set up the first installation of wordpress and got it working. When I set up the second installation I created a new database, database user, and password. Then I went into the wp-config file and input values into my wordpress2. After that I get wordpress2s showing as a project but I still can’t click on it. Any suggestions?

    Try checking the .htaccess files.
