If you have - or want to have - multiple #Joomla installs on one web hosting account, avoid nesting them inside of the main Joomla install. Not only is this a better way to manage and keep track of the files of multiple Joomla installs, it will keep them separated and help avoid all sites being compromised if one of them is hacked or infected with malware. How to install and setup multiple Joomla sites in different subdomains is what is what today's #maintenancemonday is all about.
