    Hi

    Not sure if this is what you mean but I did exactly the same thing a little while ago using 2 Wordpress and a Joomla test site before going live. All sites were new not ones already established on the net. The purpose was for just testing template and plugin edits.

    Go into your phpMyAdmin control panel and create 2 databases.

    Unzip WP and rename folder say test1. Edit wp-config file with the database 1 details such as database name, password, host and user. I think mine were host: localhost and user:root and password was the one I used when I installed wamp.

    Move to www folder of wamp.

    Unzip WP again and rename this folder to test2. Edit wp-config file with 2nd database details. Move to www folder.

    Go through the usual WP install for both sites typing the ususal localhost/test1/wp-admin/install.php and localhost/test2/wp-admin/install.php I think it was. Don't forget the http:// before localhost.

    Now if you go to localhost/test1 you will have one site and if you go to localhost/test2 you will have the 2nd Wordpress site.

    I hope this helps

    I also run a localhost on my computer called XAMPP. Is this also applicable to run multiple websites on wordpress?
