Hi,

I have already am hosting my site here which serves static files only. Is it possible to add a wordpress to that site using the same domain? eg: mydomain.com/blog.

When I try to add the application via Control panel, I get the error: "mydomain.com is already used in sites with the same IP address - you need to edit the exisiting site record first."

Also I couldn't see where to put the /blog URL suffix in the control panel.

Any hints would be appreciated.

Open the existing site for the domain in the control panel. At the bottom, to the right of Contents, click 'Add a web app'.

If your WordPress app has already been created, click 'Reuse an existing Web App'. Select the web app from the list of apps, and enter 'blog' (sans quotes) at the bottom where it says "Please enter URL here'. Click 'Add app', and then 'Save'.

If your WordPress app was not already created, click 'Create a web app' and fill in the blanks to create the app. Enter 'blog' (sans quotes) at the bottom where it says "Please enter URL here'. Click 'Add app', and then 'Save'.

I hope this helps!
