I have a website that has WordPress installed in the root directory
I have another website, that’s contents is within that root directory,
/seperatesite/ that stores a separate, small, splash page type website, with a separate domain pointing to it.
I want to setup another WordPress install inside of this folder. Is it hazardous to have two WordPress installs setup this way? I’m wondering as I currently don’t have the host credentials to create a separate database within the host area if need be, is this simple enough to move without this – or still a sensitive setup?
Thanks for any pointers!
Have you considered setting your main site to a multisite setup?
This would allow you to use the same wordpress files from the root and serve a wordpress site under the
/seperatesite/ directory without the need for duplicating files.

If you need any specific help regarding setting this up then feel free to make a new question.
