WordPress The WordPress Template Hierarchy How WordPress Templates Work Walkthrough of Example Site

New Project/ New site

Since I already have a WordPress database leading to a site (when following tutorials on How to Install WordPress and make a blog locally) , how to add a new project on the same Dashboard?

Because at the moment when I am adding pages, i can see in "all pages" section all my old pages from my current site + the new pages added to reflect the sample in this video (which impact the Menu tab).

Do you know how to proceed?

Many thanks Team! Nicolas

Since you already have a database, it may be easier to install another instance of WordPress. There are ways to share a database between two separate dashboards as well as a way to use something called MultiSite to have a network of blogs that share the same DB.

If you are just starting off learning WordPress going either of those routes will probably make things a bit more complicated. Are you using MAMP/XAMPP/Local to manage your site currently? If not I highly recommend checking them out because you can spin up any number of WordPress sites locally.

These tutorials cover both of the more advanced setups:
