Support » Fixing WordPress » Using the same installation in a different directory

  • I have WP up and running here (www.arseblog.com/WP) but I want to have guest writers to have access to WP at another address e.g (www.arseblog.com/columnists).

    What’s the easiest way to do this?

    Do I just need to install WP in that directory and copy over my templates etc or can I use the existing installation?

    thanks

  • You can move the whole thing over. In the admin, change the location first (in Options > General, look for the two URI’s). Then just move the whole thing (in linux, “mv WP columnists”)

    If you want both WP and columnists, you should make a rewrite rule in your .htaccess. I don’t have time to look up the syntax at the moment, but google will help you do that. Basically, you can have all requests to arseblog.com/columnists rewritten to arseblog.com/WP.

    Ok, thanks very much!
