Installing in a subdirectory

Hi I have a site with a wordpress front end and want to install backlight in a directory beneath it, i.e. being my backlight home page. How do I do that, please? I’m concerned about overewritign .htaccess files or having a conflict on http->https redirections

I suggest not installing Backlight in a pictures sub-directory. Instead, you can install it alongside the Wordpress files, and simply omit our index.php and .htaccess files. You won’t be able to use Backlight’s pages, but you’re probably covering those needs via Wordpress, and this will not hinder your use of Backlight’s galleries.

Even if you’re not using our WP Theme Add-on, you can refer to those setup instructions for how to organize Backlight alongside Wordpress:
