Both sites will be hosted with Dreamhost, both using my account. Is this easy to do? Do I just specify a new hostname for the database/gallery2 install? I’m a little bit confused about all that. I installed gallery2 and am still amazed that I got it to word, not knowing much about programming. Thanks for any advice!

If the two domains are hosted in the same account, you can simply rename the folder.

If you don’t want to move the entire site, you can use shell command “mc” to move a specific folder.

Have fun in Unix!
