[resolved] Host WP d/b & docs on different site (not directory) (4 posts)

    Is it possible for WordPress to be displayed on a completely different site to the site that hosts the database and wordpress files.

    For example, I wish to display it at http://www.example.com
    But i want to host it on http://www.othersite/wordpress/etc/

    I presume it might be done by the loop, but am not sure how. Any help appreciated.

    It's more complicated than that. And what if one site goes down, crippling the other. This is very strange.

    You might find information on this in the article on Moving WordPress.

    Hosting the database offsite is very easy, but it'll result in slow page generations as it has to connect via the Internet and not LAN.

    As for hosting the WordPress files offsite, that's not possible, at least in the sense that you probably want. The only way to get your WordPress install to show up on another site is to use an iframe I think. And this is't a limitation of WordPress, it's just how severs work.

    Maybe the real question should be is why do you want to do this?
