Hey there,

You would need to create a second database and upload the WordPress file to the folder within the main site’s DocumentRoot. Since /blog is something that the main WordPress installation will try to redirect and interpret, I would recommend naming placing this second WordPress site in a folder named articles or news instead.

If that doesn’t work, reply back with the steps you are getting hung up on.

Happy coding,
