    I am currently in the process of upgrading my server package, as I am at the moment only allocated 1 database, and I need 2 - one for wordpress, one for php link directory. So, this upgrade won't be happening til after the New Year, so I have around a month to sit and wait, which isn't what I want to do.

    I also have another host and other site. I want to have my wordpress blog on my main site, http://www.cupargardencentre.co.uk. Can I set wordpress up on another domain directory - for example on another one of my sites, http://www.cupar-online.co.uk. So, if I set up the blog at http://www.cupar-online.co.uk/blog/ - and restrict access so search engines do not crawl the blog, can I then export the wordpress blog to my main site when the server package upgrade is in place?

    Thanks for your help!

    You can make it so WordPress uses the same database as your other software. Just make sure the $table_prefix in your wp-config.php is 'unique'.

    Ok, php link directory doesn't use a table called table_prefix, nor does it contain any file called wp-config.php - does that mean I can install it with the same database without any problems? How do I do this - is it just the same as a normal installation or is there a 'special' way?

    Just follow Installing WordPress.

    And of course, you would backup your database before installing ANYTHING, right?
