Thanks Mike. Good to know WP -can- support multiple, independent
installs on same server. Now just need to figure out how to do it.
Re: the "relative to root" debate: interesting. Good to know, and thx
for the executive summary, saves significant research time.
Re: stock Ubuntu install: fwiw, we don't use the actual /var/www code
from 'apt-get install wordpress'. We simply "re-clone" (via 'git clone'
with some database changes as perviously mentioned) our working code set
from various dev servers/platforms (including Windows) and are running
WP 3.3.x. We employ 'apt-get install wordpress' primarily to
auto-install all the dependencies that WP uses (Apache, mysql, php, etc)
