Agg! Need help installing WP into multiple urls on GoDaddy
This is giving me a serious headache.
I'm using GoDaddy deluxe hosting, so I should be able to host multiple sites. I followed this tutorial, and when I got to the part where I was to select the install directory, I was told "Path is already in use by another application install."
I assume that means I already have WP installed in my primary domain. If so, how in the hell do I make it where I can access WP in this other domain? I want to install it in the root directory.
Right now, when I visit the secondary domain, it shows the secondary domain in the address bar (or whatever you call it where you type the url), but the display on the screen shows the primary domain.
Does that make a lick of sense?
If it does, how do I switch it to where I can use WP in the root directory of the secondary domain?

Are you using multiple domains for ONE website (eg. example.com and example.info go to the same site), or are you setting up multiple websites off the one hosting account each with their own domain name?
If the former, then generally you have one primary domain name (example.com) and any other domain name (example.info, example.org etc.) is "parked". In this instance they share the same root directory, so you only need to install wordpress the once under your primary domain.
If it's the latter, then you would probably be either looking at setting up WordPress Multisite which is a whole other kettle of fish, or each domain having their own root directory which you would install many instances of WP.

On the second problem...I DID try installing Wordpress in the root directory of the second domain, but it wouldn't let me.
Looks like it's time to give customer service a jingle...damn it!

I guess it depends just how you go about setting up the actual use of multiple domains. On my hosting (which is not GoDaddy) I have two seperate control panels. One that I use to create new accounts for each domain and then a second one that i can do anything and everything for each domain.
It really just depends exactly how they have the system set up for adding the extra sites. Also if they have made it clear enough what you need to do to add additional sites with a different domain.
If you have no luck with support, let me know and we can try and work through it on skype sometime.

If you're using Deluxe Hosting, you can have aliased domains. I'm not sure if you're already doing this: Community Help | Managing Your Hosting Account Domains
Once you have the domain aliased, the root directory for that domain will have it's own folder under the primary domain. You can then install WordPress into that root directory simply by specifying the domain name and leaving the / empty when entering what directory you want to install to.
If this isn't working for you, or the instructions don't match your needs, I suggest contacting our 24/7 support team: http://x.co/WeHelp and they'll take a look at the account and walk you through getting everything installed properly.

Just wanted to post this to give help folks who are having a hard time with it...
Get to the Hosting Control Center and do the following:
1. Hover the mouse over "setting" and click "domain management" This will take you to a list of your domains that have hosting.
2. Look to the right of the domain you want to install wordpress on, and click the pencil icon ("edit domain")
3. Add a folder name in. It's easier if you base it off your domain. (example.com, use "example")
#4 is where I screwed up. I didn't add the folder because I thought it would make my url look like "www.example.com/example", but it doesn't.
From there, hover over "content" and click "GoDaddy Hosting Connection" to install wordpress.
