    I would like to install a domain blog domain.com and a subdomain blog subdomain.domain.com.
    How is the best solution to do it ?
    1. 2 different installs each one with it's own database ?
    2. 2 different installs both with same database ?
    3. 1 install with 2 databases ?
    4. 1 install with 1 database ?

    5. A bit offtopic.
    If I want to install a forum, I would like to use phpbb, but also to share same user/pass from blog comments, which one from above is better choice ? Or which forum for wordpress is phpbb like and easier to implement ?

    Hi simi_id,

    The solution that works best for you will depend on your wants and needs for your sites. One of the benefits of doing one install from one or two databases is having one interface. The trade off is you will have to do a little more work up front.

    Have you looked at BuddyPress? It includes bbPress which you can use for your forum.

    Hope this helps!

    You may try to do a multisite if you want.
