Hi guys,
I'm working on a e-commerce in Wordpress with MAMP.
A friend of mine wants to create a new blog with this platform. Is there the possibility to work on both website? Maybe with two different Name-Password? Is there a guide I can follow? Thanks to everyone

MAMP is like having a desktop server to work with. The installations of Apache, MySql and PHP allow you to set up multiple installations of WP in different directories. You would not want to share a single installation of WordPress because one site's settings can overwrite the other site's settings. But if there are two separate installations, each within their own directories it can be done.

So Should I create two different database with MAMP? That's my problem. I know the theory but not the practice

Each installation would need their own database. Keeping them separate makes it easier to export and zip all the files for each one. You might notice I've changed the Title here so members who have done this can help out.

I've used MAMP to develop one WP site at a time, but I've never set up more than one at a time. The same place where you download MAMP should offer several how-to articles.

Thanks I hope there will be an answer to my question! I know I have to change some ports in MAMP but I donít want to ruin my website
