Hi,

I know you can install wordpress into a subfolder of a new website, but is it possible to add it to a website that already exists (uses CodeIgniter, if that's relevant), in a /blog subfolder for example, without breaking what's already there?

Thanks.

Yes; Wordpress is PHP, and so it should run as expected in the subdirectory of another application of type Static/CGI/PHP. That said, you may need to add a RewriteBase / and possibly fix up any rewrite rules that are used in the main .htaccess file of the Wordpress installation for it to work correctly.

That said, this should for the most part "just work" as long as the parent application has a PHP type base. If it were, for example, a Django application, then no.
