    Hi there,

    I have installed WP on my server and works fine. How ever I have added another domain to the hosting. But when I try to install WP for that domain it keep giving me the following messgae:

    The file 'wp-config.php' already exists one level above your WordPress installation

    and then uses the WP-Config from the install on the folder above it!

    How do I stop this happening as the domain needs its own DB and not use the same as the other!

    quick fix
    rename the wp-config.php from the other folder temporarily - run the install - change the wp-config.php back

    are you sure you have created a different database? or are you using the same one? if using the same one, you must change the table_prefix to something different.

    Sorted..... that one worked..... It would be good to have the 'OPTION' though to either use the config above or create new in current directory.
