  • Just create a folder on your server and install wordpress into that as if you wereinstalling it into the root folder of your server but make sure in the b2config.php file you put the folder name in the $siteurl bit

    I wouldn’t do that yet. With b2, there were several files you have to modify to get everything to work. I upgraded my b2, without making the code changes, and posting works, but I haven’t tested anything else. If there are any changes that need to be made to get all the features to work, then I think it would be nice if the developers would put instructions in the readme.

    I haven’t looked at this yet, but it’s something I did when I used b2 and would be interested in doing again. Can you not make the changes in the templates to point them to the subfolder as you could with b2?

    i tried but was completely lost. when i changed b2, i had found a forum post that explained which files needed the changes. since i have little experience with php beyond using b2, wordpress is a bit overwhelming right now. if someone could tell me what exactly needs to be changed, or come up with an easy fix for it, i would be most grateful.

    What’s the forum post? I might be able to translate the instructions to work with WordPress.

    That’s the one. I wrote it, and all the features that I use work with those modifications. I am not sure that trackback, pingback, the calandar work, since I don’t use those.


    Are there any follow-ups to this message?
    I’m really hoping to find out how to worok this…



    The latest release of WP allows for installing into a sub-directory. See the online documentation for more info.


    Could you you please direct me to that document? I’ve been looking around and can’t seem to find it.
