    Inside the folder that as WordPress, put a folder with all the bbPress files in it. So maybe you have this:

    /public/html/wordpress/

    add a new folder:

    /public/html/wordpress/forum/ (or forums or discussion or bbpress)

    then access your new installation at http://www.example.com/forum (or whatever you selected) assuming WordPress is accessible at http://www.example.com/

    Thank you very much for your support…I got some help from my hosting site to create a database like the installer requested…but the one he created is not directly in my wordpress file…can you show me an example of what a WP site with the forum install looks like so I can see what I am working towards…Give me a URL if you don’t mind…Thank you again…Kenney

    They don’t look any different than a WordPress installation, and then a bbPress forum at a different URL. Here’s what it looks like if you don’t do any sort of integration:

    bbPress: http://www.riversideinfo.org/forum/

    WordPress: http://www.riversideinfo.org/

    WordPress is in the html root, and then in that folder is a forum folder, which is why bbPress is accessible at http://www.riversideinfo.org/forum/
