Installing 2nd wordpress blog in sub directory

8 replies
Hello

I have a self hosted wordpress site lets say example.com
and I want to set up another self hosted wordpress site at example.com/another

Is it just as easy easy as
1. going to /public_html and creating a sub directory "another"
2. uploading zip files of the wordpress
3. unzip it
4. you now have a a self hosted wordpress site at the sub directory?

is this correct or is there anything I need to further tweak/do...?

Thanks

    nope, that's it. WP will recognize where it's at and adjust itself.

    Don't forget to create another mySQL database for it!

    Hope this helps,

    You have to create another database for the sub-directory and change the codes on wp-config.php according to your new database.
