Multiple Copies of Wordpress



So, I want to register another domain, and set up another Wordpress blog in the root of this domain. All the support materials here at DreamHost talk about sharing a MySQL DB with more than one install of Wordpress.

Well, can’t I just create a unique MySQL DB so that I don’t need to share with my existing Wordpress install/MySQL DB? I’m assuming what I want to do is pretty straight forward, but was thrown off by all the MySQL sharing comments.

I don’t have to share the DB do I?


No, you don’t have to use the same DB, you can simply create another one. You ‘can’ share databases (using a table prefix) instead of creating a new one if you wanted to but since dreamhost lets you get as many databases as you want (so long as you don’t go over the total amount of server space you supposed to be using) just making a new one is fine.
