WHMCS w/ Wordpress - in subfolder or subdomain?


Recommended Posts

I am using Wordpress as the CMS for my website to resell hosting with WHMCS installed in a sub-folder of root domain .. like: http://<website>.com/customers'>http://<website>.com/customers


In this case, how real is the threat of WHMCS getting compromised because wordpress is prone to hacker attacks?


Should I instead insall WHMCS on http://customers.<website>.com ? If I go that route, how would I handle single signon of customers between both applications?


Or, I should simply:

1. make a static website at http://<website>.com

2. make a blog on http://<website>.com/blog

3. Install WHMCS on http://customers.<website>.com


I am starting out and any help on this foundational question will help a lot. Thanks in advance for caring to answer.

Your billing system should be completely isolated from anything else. Ideally on it's own server. However if you must share the space, I recommend putting it it's own account (ie: subdomain). In regards to single signon - Why would they be signing into on your WordPress?

I use WordPress as my mine site. And I have it on a totally different server separate from WHMCS which is on a VPS all to its on as a subdomain, all for security reasons. I personally can't think of a reason you would have some one login to WordPress that is one of your customers. Unless you are setting up some sort of membership site removed from WHMCS.
