How to Install WordPress in a subdirectory

The question came up recently about how to install WordPress in a sub-directory so they could use OptimizePress for some landing pages. (OptimizePress is a theme specifically for creating product or event landing pages, squeeze pages, opt-in pages, sales pages, etc. Because it is a theme, it will override your existing theme if you want to use it on an already established site. To accommodate this, you can install WordPress in a sub-directory or as a sub-domain (which are two different things, by the way.)

It’s sort of complicated to try to walk someone through this process in a Facebook group, but easy enough to show in a video. So I’ve created this video demonstrating the process.

Also, I’m rather new to the screen-casting video world, and would appreciate your feedback on this video. Feel free to leave your comments below.
