Installation Wordpress + Backlight

Good morning,

just a question regarding the installation of "Wordpress + Backlight". My folder structure looks like this:

Domain "X"
/httpdocs/
/httpdocs/index.php
/httpdocs/.htaccess
/httpdocs/backlight
/httpdocs/galleries

Is it possible to install and use the Wordpress plugin if the structure looks like this:

Subdomain "Y" (along with Domain "X")
/blog
/httpdocs/
/httpdocs/index.php
/httpdocs/.htaccess
/httpdocs/backlight
/httpdocs/galleries

or is it really necessary to place the subdomain folder within the domain "X" directory?
/httpdocs/
/httpdocs/blog
/httpdocs/index.php
/httpdocs/.htaccess
/httpdocs/backlight
/httpdocs/galleries

I know the second approach is explained by your manual, just want to make sure the first one is not working.

Thank you
Moritz


EDIT:
additional question: Is Backlight PHP7.1 compatible?

Re: Installation Wordpress + Backlight

Either setup will work, but if you put your WordPress installation in a subdomain you'll also need an installation of Backlight in that subdomain as well.
Your last example, with WordPress in a sub folder is the easiest.

If you do want to install WordPress in a subdomain, you can design your site in the main domain, export your page template, and then import it into the subdomain's Backlight installation, where you can then create and export the WordPress theme to your WordPress installation.
