you dont have to change the current config file

make a new installation under the new directory and you will have your new site

you have to go www.domainname.no/demo/administrator for the new one

There is no reason at all why you can't have the demo site running on a sub directory with a different database etc.

It may be that you accidentally logged it to your main admin \www.domainname.no/administrator and did the changes
rather than the demo admin
www.domainname.no/demo/administrator
