How To Install Multiple WordPress Blogs On A Domain

install multiple wordpressInstalling a WordPress blog is easy as pie with Fantastico De Luxe.

However, if you want to install more than one wordpress blog on a single domain, you’re stumped.

This is because Fantastico De Luxe, which is a free tool with cPanel, only allows you to install a blog once.

Some people want more than one blog on their domain.

For example, with TrafficBeast.com:

  • I have my main blog at the root (http://www.trafficbeast.com)
  • I have my coaching membership blog using WishList¬† (http://www.trafficbeast.com/IPE)
  • I’m planning to have a blog with a premium content section (http://www.trafficbeast.com/Premium)

So now I need 3 wordpress blogs under the same domain TrafficBeast.com

Here are the steps on how to do this:

1. Download the WordPress software from WordPress.org

2. Upload the software to a directory where you want the blog to be (i.e. http://www.trafficbeast.com/IPE)

3.  Go to cPanel and create a MYSQL database and a MYSQL username.

4. Edit the wp-config-sample.php file in your WordPress installation with your MYSQL database, username and password details.

5. Upload the file, go to http://yourdomain.com/blogfolder and follow the easy instructions to install WordPress.

The whole process should take you around 5 – 10 minutes.

If you haven’t the foggiest of what I mean, don’t worry.
