Does anyone know if it is possible to have two separate installations of Opencart in the same domain: one in the root and the second in a directory.

If yes, how can I do it?

Many thanks

Thank you for your question Ugo!

You can install the Open Cart software with Softaculous to the domain by leaving the In Directory box blank. Then you can install the second Open Cart again on the same domain by entering the subfolder name in the In Directory box. That way you have an install on the domain doc root and in the sub directory.

Thank you for your kind reply.
I have a problem now:
I made two separate opencart installations, one in the root and one in the /en/ directory.
When I open the /en/ directory website (, I can see all internal links pointing correctly to the same /en/ path, but after clicking on any of those links, I am transferred to the root website (
I checked the paths in the config files of the /en/ website and they are all correct, and also the en-specific mysql db, so what can be the problem?
