Setting up Multiple Blogs (2 posts)

    WordPress was downloaded and installed on a PC which acts as a server to host all the blogs we will create. WordPress on the Internet is not being used to host the blogs.

    A new virtual directory was created in order to create a brand new blog and now whenever that new blog is updated, the original blog is updated the same way. How can I stop this automatic updating and have the blogs operate separately and independently?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    If you're planning on setting up multiple blogs on a large scale you might consider WPMU (WordPress Multiple User: http://mu.wordpress.org/. Otherwise, it sounds like you used the same config file for both blogs and have them both pointed to the same database. Each blog would need it's own directory and installation and you either need to create a new database for each blog OR give each one a unique prefix (in the config file) which would allow them to all be within the same database.
