I installed 2 WP 2.6.1 blogs, each with its own db/user/pass/folder. Initially I placed the folders off of my web document root like so:
I web browsed to these folders and ran the install scripts in their separate locations and the blogs seemed to be installed and functional.
Then I set up apache for virtual hosting and tested that it was working by placing simple index.html files in the separate Document root folders. I have problems, however, when I set the Document root for each virtual host to the WP folder where the core .php files reside. What happens when I go to one of the VirtualHost ServerName URLs is that apache does not display the blog, but instead redirects me to http://www.servy.com. (My hostname is "servy" - I think this is related)
I have tested the virtual hosting aspect of my system, so I believe this to be a WP-specific problem. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. More info at http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?p=1104996&posted=1#post1104996
If I decide to just start over and reinstall WP, can I simply replace the WP root folders and then re-use the same database I've already set up?
