I've had one WordPress blog for a long time; now I'd like to set up another using the same core software, but a different theme and content. I've tried to accomplish this with Virtual Multiblog, WP Hive, and the new network version, and struck out each time.
My WordPress install (that is, index.php and all the wp-* directories) is in my top-level directory (public_html).
My current blog is at example.us. I want the new blog to live at new1.example.us. Using cPanel I've created a new1 subdomain, and my hosting provider has added a wildcard entry for my domain.
The WordPress network software install went fine, and using the Sites entry on the SuperAdmin menu I created a new1 site. But when I try to visit the site, I get an empty directory listing.
I also tried WP Hive. It too installed fine, and created the site, but when I click "Install Site," I get that empty directory listing.
I'm sure I'm missing some vital little step or not understanding something important. Can anyone help, please?
