I've successfully installed Zen Cart v1.50 with sample data and have been working with sample customers, sending emails, new categories and products, etc.

All that is going well, but I think I might like to change my approach: I would like to keep doing that at, say, mysite.com/testdrive or testdrive.mysite.com, but as I learn I'd like to also start developing the real site at mysite.com without the clutter of the sample data.

I want to keep the sample data at the testdrive site because it's a great learning aid (and I still have a lot to learn!).

Can I have 2 installs of Zen-Cart at those 2 locations? If so, should I use a subfolder in my root directory (mysite.com/testdrive) or should I use a subdomain (testdrive.mysite.com)?

Hello Howcho,

You may certainly install a second instance of Zencart. This will create a new install and database so they operate independently. The only restriction is you cannot place it in the same subdirectory as any other program.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
