Stupid Starting out question

    @txfig

    I am part of a group of people in the beginning stages of forming a new non-profit organization.

    I am about to create a website for the group (wordpress) as well as a forum, but I don’t want all of the people who have access to the forum to also have access to the website itself. My preference for the 2 sites is

    Main website: https://siteurl.org/ (and https://www.siteurl.org/)
    Forum: https://forum.siteurl.org/

    I have full access to the cPanel for the hosting location. Do I need to just create a seperate folder in the home directory called “forum” and do a separate install of WordPress there (assuming of course that the main website will be installed in the .public_html directory)?

    yes, in effect create the subdomain you say, and install wordpress and bbpress.

    Then you could just have a home page with the code [bbp-forum-index] in it and that is all that site would contain
