Installing to Yahoo WebHost
This could be a little complicated – please bear with me.
I currently have a website (designed by me – very basic) hosted with yahoo.com
Also hosted on that server is my wordpress.org blog: Life in Orillia
What I want to do is replace my current website (Photography of Grace) with another WordPress blog, though the blog design is similar to a website design. It’s just so much easier updating that than the website.
I don’t want to remove my current website from the server until I know this is going to work, so anybody with some knowledge of how this works – I would appreciate your suggestions.
I know that yahoo supports the wp.org stuff since I currently have a blog hosted there in a subdirectory. I’m not sure what version it is currently – I don’t remember if I’ve updated it (stupid I know).
In the file manager for my yahoo website is a folder called “Orillia Blog” which is where all of the files were installed for the wp.org blog Life in Orillia. I link to it from my website’s main menu.
In the main (root) directory is where the files reside for the POG website, as well as a folder called “wordpressblog” – that holds image files for one of my wordpress.com blogs. (I only mention it in case that folder title might be a problem).
I guess what I need to know is:
1. If I remove all the photography of grace files from the root directory and install the new wordpress.org to that root directory, will it have any affect of the Life in Orillia blog in that subdirectory?
2) Is it possible to run the two wordpress.org blogs from the same server without causing issues between the two?
3) Will the “wordpressblog” folder title cause problems?
Though I know a little about website stuff, my website gets published through Microsoft FrontPage automatically, so I don’t know much about setting up the server.
Any help would be appreciated.
