How to install multiple web instances of Sitecore on single machine

If you want to work on multiple Sitecore projects then it’s a tricky situation to install and run multiple Sitecore instances on the same machine.

If you don’t know how to install Sitecore, then please refer my previous article on it from here.

First install as many sitecore instances you want. At my machine I installed 3 instances of Sitecore as NewInstance1, NewInstance2 and NewInstance3.

I had used same License.xml file during installation of all instances.

After installation, my IIS and SQL Server should look like this



For each instance, there are 3 databases.



·         If you want to browse and run all instances at the same time then there must be valid entry in “hosts” file at “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc” for each instance as shown below



If you did not find any such entry in Hosts file then make it manually.
