[MediaWiki-l] setting up a wiki-farm

I'm trying to set up a wiki-farm using the instructions at [fn:1] which
I know are a bit old, but I like using sequential installation

However, wiki-1 installs perfectly with no problems, but if I try and
install wiki-2 it states "A LocalSettings.php file has been detected. To
upgrade this installation, please enter the value of $wgUpgradeKey in
the box below. You will find it in LocalSettings.php."

I've tried using the upgrade key but am unable to progress further. I've
tried removing the LocalSettings.php, installing wiki-2 and then
replacing the LocalSettings.php from wiki-1. Wiki-1 still works, but
wiki-2 doesn't.

Wiki-1 has a prefix of 'df-' for its mariadb with the intention of
wiki-2 having a prefix of 'tg-'. So they're using the same database but
with different prefixes for their respective tables.

Both of the sites that I'm using are purely localhost, they will have no
internet presence at all, and are just intended to be used for
generating and checking new pages in their respective wikis.

So how can I easily install wiki-2, and perhaps others, too please?
