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 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 \ and did the changes
rather than the demo admin
