Multiple Instances of Octoprint on Linux

#1

What is the problem?
I've seen tons of guides on how to get multiple instances of OctoPrint going on a single Pi. I, however, would like to get four instances going on a Linux machine. I followed the community guide (Setting up OctoPrint on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian) and a single instance of octoprint works fine. I then copied the "~/OctoPrint" folder into four separate instances, and created four config.yaml files. When I try and start a second instance of OctoPrint, however, it doesn't associate with the new .yaml. How do I point OctoPrint to use a file other than config.yaml, say, config2.yaml?
