    Hi All,

    Hope someone can help me with my question, happy to donate if someone can point me in the right direction.

    I'm having a site built in ASP and need to have a wordpress blog either in a /blog directory or within a subdomain of my site i.e. blog.mysite.com

    My webhosting packages only supports Asp, not php.

    Is there a way to have wordpress run within say a /blog directory but have it connected to an external PHP hosting package?

    Or perhaps another way to do it, i.e. play with some DNS settings etc?

    Sorry for my ignorance with how is best to do this, bit confused. I’m rather new to this and can’t seem to find the answer on the web.

    Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Carl:)

    point the subdomain to somewhere else, via dns -- a host that supports PHP.

    put wordpress there.

    thanks for the response, its really appreciated! I gather this is the best way to do it?

    is there any way to point the directory to another host via dns as i would idealy prefer to have the blog within a directory rather than subdomain.

    mysite.com/blog

    to a subdomain like

    blog.mysite.com

    It is not possible to point sub-directory to other hosting server. You can only point your sub-domains.

    The only way I know of doing that would be to go old-school and use a framed redirect to enclose the php site within a single frame page on the asp site. However I wouldn't recommend it as using frames would cause more problems that it solves.

    Setting up a sub-domain really is the way to go, unless you can upgrade your hosting to enable using php/mySQL on the existing server.

    thanks for the info, I did think of frames but its not really a full integration and they can be a bit nasty.

    All I've got to figure out now is how to point the dns subdomain settings of the asp hosted website to the php hosting package?

    Using plesk so hope its possible.

    You just need to add A record for your sub-domain in the dns server of your main domain. You will need to add following entry:

    yoursubdomain A IP_Addrress_of_PHP_Server

    This should be possible via Pleask control panel or you may update your host to do it for you.
