I have installed WP2.5 and am running a blog. Now I need to create a different blog. How do I go about doing it?

Apologies - this is a WP-NOOB Q, but would appreciate any pointers.
Here's some Wordpress vids they might of some help?

About to look at them myself as new to wordpress too!

is there any script or software which install 1000+ blogs in minutes in sub folders
Got the answer.
Here is what you need to do:

Install 2 instances of WP. Use a different prefix in the the wp_config.php
[You dont need 2 databases. ]

Yes, as simple as that!
blogmatrix doesnt do the thing i mean it works but the blog is dynamic under same files they are using the same file not making a different install
i have a solution for you, it will do exactly what you want. http://www.wordpressmassinstaller.com/
Any of the tools mentioned including WPMU will work but if you absolutely need each one to be its own install, you could just do the barebones fantastico install and then use a WP cloner tool to get it to look the way you want.
On the subject of WPMU.

I did my first Mu install with the help of the guys in the back room, the read me file is scary.

So, what I would like to do is hard code in some links of my own into the sidebar or footer or. But I'm not a coder and whatever I try, wherever I place code, it looks like carp.

I was able to get the Buy me a Beer plugin to work and look good, but text Links are killing me. I guess I can do it with widgets but they are not hard coded into my templates and I do not want the Mu bloggers to take them out, i.e. that will be how I get paid.

I am using Mu Templates, this what I have working right now. Is there a way to hard code a Text Widget in place?

My mind is mush, I could use some public or private help please.

< ?php buymebeer_sidebar(); ?>

<div id="sidebar">

<div id="searchdiv">

<form id="searchform" method="get" action="/index.php">

<input type="text" name="s" id="s" size="20"/>

<input name="sbutt" type="submit" value="Find" alt="Submit" />


<?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar')

|| !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>


<a href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>" title="<?php _e('Syndicate this site using RSS'); ?>"><img src="http://www.feedburner.com/fb/images/pub/feed-icon32x32.png"></a>


<h2><?php _e('Categories');?></h2>


<?php wp_list_cats(); ?>


<h2><?php _e('Monthly Archives');?></h2>


<?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>


<?php endif; ?>

Solo, whats up with the blog limit? Are we talking splogs for the most part? For instance, if I wanted to give away WP Mu blogs at greatdomain.com/* you are saying I would get banned?

Also are you really here in SoCal as your links would suggest?
