Wordpress install along side existing site.

I currently have a HTML site.
can I install wordpress in a directory build my wordpress version while still keeping the existing site running.
then when its ready is it easy to switch over?

ive only ever installed wordpress in the root folder and started a build live from scratch?

Helper VI

@simononestop of course you can!


You just have to install WP in a directory, and access through, and once it's finished you then follow this official WordPress guide.


Hope it helps!
