Hi I am just polling opinion on what to do here. I have a static website in the root of a domain for a client of mine who is using it as their main website. He also has a WordPress installation (just as a simple blog) in a subfolder on the same domain using a pre built theme. I am now about to redesign their main website and want to power that with wordpress. I have built wordpress themes before so quite happy to do this but my question is:
1. Do I move the existing wordpress installation into the root, which would mean doing some rewrites in .htaccess to allow for the url changes?
2. Should I just install a new wordpress in the root to power the main website and just keep this and the subfolder blog separate.
What do you think?
