Support » Installing WordPress » Sorting out how to handle second blog/one db

  • Am I understanding the stuff I’ve searched for and read that in order to do more than one blog in the same database (with different table prefixes) you have to set them up at the same time? There’s no going back to add in more at a later time if you have blogs already in working order?

    Or (as is usual, and more likely) am I confused?

  • I have set multiple blogs up at various times in the same database. What has worked for me is just changing the prefix in the wp-config file.

    Where it says: // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple blogs in a single database.<br />
    $table_prefix = 'wp_'; // example: 'wp_' or 'b2' or 'mylogin_'

    Just make sure the table prefixes are different. For example, wp1 for your firstblog, wp2 for your second, etc. I think I have 5! HTH!

    Ah ha! See, I knew I must be missing something. Thank you very much eveums, that helps heaps!

    Thanks, macmanx – I read that too, but the way it’s written made me believe that it was only able to be done with a new install….
