Running Drupal And Wordpress On The Same Web Server
So you got a wonderful Drupal site running on your web server and have put in a lot of sweat creating and administrating it. But you have a desire to venture out and try to do some work with Wordpress. Here's some tips to get this to work.
HTTP Errors Everywhere
If you try to install and run separate Drupal and Wordpress websites on the same webserver, you will run into problems and likely see HTTP 404 and HTTP 500 errors blasting all over the place.
Having burned time trying to get this to work, I came up with the following solution that will hopefully help someone out there.
Setting Up Wordpress
We want to install Wordpress in it's own folder so we can organize our files better.
Imagine if you want to install some web software that is different than Wordpress. You don't want to install this in the Wordpress folder because that would be silly.
