I currently have a Wordpress project that I've set up to run on localhost in /var/www/html. I'm using a LAMP stack.
I want to start another wordpress project, and I've been reading a little bit about hosting multiple sites with MAMP or XAMPP. I'm not sure whether this is what I need to do. My projects are completely separate and won't depend on one another. I won't be running both applications at the same time. I also don't want to do anything to mess up my existing project currently on localhost.
Do I need to use MAMP/XAMPP? Is there a simple way to set it up so that I can run my new project on localhost as well, without interfering with my current project?
