I have just started to begin learning wordpress and need a bit of help
I currently have a website running (HTML) and would like to rewrite the site in wordpress. The site need to keep running while I play around with wordpress
1. Do I install WordPress into the public_html directory or do I install it into a subdirectory ie public_html/wp. If it is installed directly into the public_html directory will it affect my currently running site ?
2. Once I have developed the new wordpress site how do I get it to open automatically when a person visits the site ?
