Need to install wordpress on sub-directory

wordpress

#1

Hi

I’m new to dreamhost and trying to figure out how to install wordpress on a sub-directory of a domain that sits elsewhere.

eg www.abc.co.uk/newwordpressdirectory

The other domain uses a completely different cms. I’ve used the 1-click install and when I was emailed the ‘www.abc.co.uk/newwordpressdirectory/wp-admin/install.php link’ it took me to a ‘not found’ page on the main domain site.

Is it even possible to do what I want to do?

Many thanks

What happens if you go to www.abc.co.uk/newwordpressdirectory ?

(Also can you tell us your domain name or account ID so maybe we can look on the server and see?)
