WordPress MU Domain Mapping
How to install phpBB (or other software) in a subdirectory of (1 post)

    I have a WordPress Network (AKA multisite and multiuser/MU) successfully using domain mapping. I want to install phpBB so that it works only on one of the mapped domains, and it doesn't steal that same subdirectory from other mapped domains.

    To illustrate:

    master-site.com —subsites as subdomains
    ----subsite1.com/forums/ —it's own phpBB
    ----subsite2.com/forums/ —a different phpBB
    ----subsite3.com/forums/ —nothing here, so should be a 404

    How can I accomplish this with a mapped domain? subsite1.com/forums and subsite2.com/forums/ should be separate forums.

    I had hoped it would be as simple as installing into the blogs.dir/ID directory, but a simple test file dropped in there and accessed via subsite1.com/test.jpg didn't work.

    Yes, I can successfully install phpBB via Fantastico to subsite1.com/forums/, but then /forums/ on all of the other subsites show the exact same content.

    My domains are setup as parked domains in Cpanel. I don't think an addon domain would be a solution because that wouldn't work with WordPress Network.

    Thank you in advance for the help!
