I'm new to Wordpress and can't figure this out anywhere.

I'm looking to set a site up with the following structure:

forums.domain.com -> static site

forums.domain.com/directory/de -> Wordpress site

forums.domain.com/directory/en -> different Wordpress site

Could anyone provide some pointers on how to set up the Wordpress application in the subdirectories?

Thanks

Method 1:
Create 2 Wordpress applications in the control panel. Then edit your website record with the static application and add the Wordpress application with the paths:
/directory/de
/directory/en

Using this method the applications will not be in the static sites directory, but will be 3 separate applications in the control panel and webapps:
/home/username/webapps/static app
/home/username/webapps/wordpress 1
/home/username/webapps/wordpress 2

Method 2:
If you are using a Static/CGI/PHP application, you can create a directory in your existing static application and manually install Wordpress into that directory:
/home/username/webapps/static app
/home/username/webapps/static app/directory/de
/home/username/webapps/static app/directory/en

Using this method you will need to create your database manually in the control panel since you are not using an installer.
