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.
