This may be a stupid question....BUT, lol.
Is it possible to install a 2nd WP in it's own directly like "public directory/test/" for testing purposes and have it use the database of the main WP install? So that it pulls data into it?
Hmm... thinking about that, not sure why you would want to use the same database...because you'd probably want to do some test posting and you wouldn't want it to show up on your main install.
Am I thinking right?
