In this video I show how to quickly install a WordPress blog and then replicate it multiple times resulting in multiple independent WordPress installs using a single database. If you need hundreds of WordPress installs, then the using the network feature (multiple blog feature) in WordPress is the way to go. However, if you only need a few then installing separate blogs may be a lit simpler and easier for you to manage.
Outline of my presentations at WordCamp Louisville:
WP Basic Installation and Setup:
- Install in subdirectory
- Install in root

- Using single database
- Using different databases

- Install local copy for offline testing/development
Moving WP From One Host to Another:
- Move WP maintaining same url
- Move WP changing the url
- Move WP subdirectory to root & vice-versa
- Copy WP from hosting account to local computer
Tools used in presentations:
WinSCP: A simple ftp client I use in conjunction with hosting control panels such as Cpanel.
Note: The following tutorial is intended to demonstrate how to install XAMPP and WordPress on your local Windows computer. It is not recommended that you connect this to the web…this is a very insecure set-up intended for local (off-line) purposes such as local testing, development, etc.
