  • 2 blogs under one domain

    Is it possible to install 2 WP blogs under one domain?

    Re: 2 blogs under one domain

    On my blog I just use categories for different post. I am not sure if that will solve your problem or not.

      Actually, I am looking at doing blog1.mydomain.com and blog2.mydomain.com

        Tell me this then.

        You have two WP blogs. and I typed blog.domain.com. What logic will run to determine which blog to show...

          I think that 2 Word Press installs on a single account would throw errors as the are both looking to a single MySQL database.

            Actually, there is no reason why you cannot do it!

            To confirm this, I just tested it out on a myhosting.com Basic account using only 1 MySQL database, and it works like a charm. When configuring your two blogs, just make sure that you specify a different table prefix for each blog. So for example wp1_ for your first blog and wp2_ for your second. And you can just upload the files to different sub-directories, for example you can have mysite.com/blog1 and mysite.com/blog2.

            And there's no reason why you can't have more than 2, as long as you make sure to store the data for each blog in separate MySQL tables.

            The only problem with this is that whenever there's a new version, you have to upgrade 2 times

            As an alternative, you may be interested in trying something like WordPress MU which allows you to configure multiple blogs with only a single code-base. So it would be similar to what they do with the wordpress.com blog hosting service.
