I'm new to using wordpress (and installing it) and am trying to get it installed to the website however I already have a script installed in the main directory and would feel safer installing wordpress in its own directory - such as "wordpress".
I've gone through the support forums here and read some of the relavant topics regarding installing wordpress in another directory and general installation. I just want to make sure I'm doing this right as I feel I may be over complicating the process.
Would I be able to just upload the wordpress directoy (after making the changes to as stated in the install instructions to reflect the SQL database) and follow the rest of the steps to add on the "wordpress" directory in the paths of the files that are stated to need such changes for installation?
All I want to know is that afterwards would I be able to have successfully installed WordPress and have it where http://www.mydomainname.com/blog is where the blog would appear by taking these actions to get it installed.
I sincerly appreciate any help and assurance with this I just want to make sure I am taking the right actions. Thank you again.
