I'm just wondering if it is possible to run 2 seperate moodles on the same server.
To be honest one would be for the staff and the other one for me to experiment with, so I don't break the real one.
I am currently running moodle on a Win 2003 server with easyphp.
My next question is...
Do i need to create a new database and basically install as if from scratch?
Yes, that is correct from stract, It only takes a few minutes.
There is also a setting to change "sessioncookie" so that cookies for the two Moodles on the same server, do not clash and overwrite each other.

Also, if you are one of those servers that has a flat charge per database you use then I think that you could change
$CFG->prefix = 'moodle_';
in the config.php of the second moodle installation to
$CFG->prefix = 'moodle2_';
so that the two installations share the same database. I would not recommend it though.
