Hosting multiple wordpress sites on Hostgator

In hostgator, when you add a domain how do you set up the 2nd and multiple sites using fantastico. When I uploaded, it seemed like I needed a new root directory, and when I asked support, they told me I could only host 1 WP site in that CPanel.

Directing me to instructions would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
You will need to create a new directory for each blog.
also, you will need more than just the basic package hosting as the basic just allows one site.
Here is a tutorial for you for fantastico ..
