Installing MyBB inside WordPress Blog - situnrocks - 2015-07-17

Hello Community,

Currently I'm using Unmanaged VPS for hosting my blog domain.com and due to good audience I'm willing to start a community for users on the same domain instead a new domain. So I have one doubt whether its possible to setup MyBB Forum inside this domain as domain.com/forum without affecting wordpress setup. I have seen many sites do this but no idea what is the correct procedure.

of course, you can install MyBB forum in a sub-folder (eg. /forum)
you may have to modify a couple of htaccess rules used for wordpress (eg. see replies here)

Easiest way to do this install Mybb in a Separate folder outside of Wordpress and then at top of the Wordpress homepage in the header nav bar add a link to your Mybb forum.
