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 <strong>In Directory</strong> box blank. Then you can install the second Open Cart again on the same domain by entering the subfolder name in the <strong>In Directory</strong> 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?
