Hi everyone,

I'm planning to install a second WordPress site on my web space and want to make sure that it doesn't affect the one that is already in place. The existing WordPress site was not installed via cPanel, and so it doesn't appear on the WordPress manager ('No compatible WordPress sites exist on this cPanel account').

I've created a second MySQL database and will install the new WordPress site under a subdomain. Is there anything else I need to consider to make sure that the installation doesn't overwrite any existing files?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Max

My only suggestion would be to NOT put the subdomain inside the public_html to avoid .htaccess issues.
IF it can be helped, some providers restrict document roots to public_html
