Seeking advice for in root or in sub-folder install
My first posts at BP, sorry if too long. Hello all! Thanks for this great software.
Please help me with my beginner’s dilemma, where to install WP/BP. In root or in a subdirectory, a subfolder? Could you people please share your experiences? I wanna make this right with bp.
Site I run is old(2002), avg. 5K visits per day, 10K+ visits/d easy when there is a TV program/news about stuff I do (as per my avatar it’s also bricks and mortar and the web is a huge expose.) I have a few thousands pages indexed on Google. Shared server hosting still ok although i did try dedicated once but yet it was pointless overkill. I have already one WP installed in sub-folder mydomain.com/articles/ and I have set up permalinks as /%post_id%/%postname% ( mydomain.com/articles/123/eg-hello-world-article )
I am struggling with the basic thing What should I do, what are the pluses and minuses and consequences as for where is installed BuddyPress? I think I have a 3 options here:
a new WP/BP in – mydomain.com/
use the existing in – mydomain.com/articles/
A new in – mydomain.com/community/
* Also, I am not sure whether I have to set up the multisite in WP so BP potential can function the best?; maybe the standard WP(normal single site/blog) is all right as I want only one blog in which different authors are allowed to publish their articles. I’d like all the main BP features, forums, groups, the BP Media Album+, member profiles, and the one blog shared by all members. Am I right in here???
Thank you for your conversation, hopefully it’ll start up and be a help to others too!
