Support » Installing WordPress » Multiple Install Problem on Hostgator

  • I uploaded WP 2.2.3 to the root of my hosting account on Hostgator. Set up the DB, installed, everything worked fine.

    I have another domain that is on the same account. I wanted to set up a WP blog there also. I set up a seperate DB, uploaded the files to the root of that domain and tried to run the install. But I never got a response back. No error, nothing.

    I have deleted the WP folder and DB for the second installation and re-did the process with the same result. So I deleted again and tried Fantastico. But that one will not open the admin panel.

    Any suggestions?

  • Okay assume your new domain is called and that you have that Add-on Domain pointing to the folder domain2.

    Hostgator uses cPanel so using the cPanel File Manager, upload the WordPress 2.3 zip distribtution to /public_html/domain2 folder. Extract the contents of the zip. Put wp-config.php (with the correct database info) in the /public_html/domain2/wordpress folder. Browse to and that will kick-off the install. Once the install is done, login and go to Options->General and change the Blog address (URL) to and finally put this index.php in your /public_html/domain2 folder

    /* Short and sweet */
    define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);
