Suitable for Wordpress

I have only just come across this sub-forum and had never heard of PAYH until this morning.
I am thinking about creating a Blog and 'might' be using Wordpress. Is PAYH suitable for this, according to the Wordpress web site the following are required to be supported:
    *  PHP 4.3 or greater
    * MySQL 4.0 or greater
    * The mod_rewrite Apache module
I already have a simple web site up and running on plusnet (www.paulgulliver.plus.com), if I sign up to this new system will I have to transfer my old site to the new one or can I keep both running?

Re: Suitable for Wordpress

Wordpress can be run on the PAYH server no problem. In fact wordpress 2.3.3 is one of the pre loaded scripts that you can easily install with the "Applications manager".
You could have both sites running together but your wordpress site would have http://paulgulliver.plushost.co.uk as the address whereas your current site would maintain its present address.
If you have a domain name you can have http://www.domain.co.uk point to your current site and then have for example http://blog.domain.co.uk point to the wordpress site thus maintaining the look of your web address.
