Can I have wordpress & xenforo, unconnected (no bridge), on the same host?

Is this possible? What would I have to do to do this? I have a blog as a main page mainly used for articles, and I'd like to have a forum under the same domain name and host with xenforo. I am assuming this is possible but I'm wondering what if anything special i have to do, because if I go to (mydomain).com/forum it still thinks it's part of wordpress.

Yes, it's fine.
You can install multiple scripts/softwares on the same domain/server.

because if I go to (mydomain).com/forum it still thinks it's part of wordpress.
How do you mean?

If XF is installed in the /forum subdirectory, it is self contained and separate from WP.
Hi brogan, thanks for being so helpful. I spoke before I finished uploading.

I got about halfway through the upload to my "forum" subdirectory in "public_html", but I am getting an error on filezilla now:

Response: 421 Too many connections (8) from this IP
Error: Could not connect to server
Status: Disconnected from server
Status: Delaying connection for 5 seconds due to previously failed connection attempt...

Is this caused by wordpress, or something else?

I found a quick fix, added it to "site manager" (The domain + hosting), it uploaded another 200-300 files and then stopped again.

Sorry if this isn't your area. I am just trying to figure this out. Don't know where to go for advice.
