I've been playing with Xenforo for a few months and love it. I plan to start a new forum using the software and could use some help deciding on the best directory structure. The domain I'm going to use ends with the word forums. I'd prefer to keep the actual domain private for now, so for this discussion I'll refer to the domain as

It is very possible that in the near future I will want to install other software such as a cms, wiki, gallery, etc. If you were creating a new site under similar circumstances, what directory structure would you choose? Below are a few locations I've considered for forum installation, but I'm open to new ideas as well.

If those other applications are xenForo addons then I would just install it in the root (no subdirectory). But if you will be installing other web applications outside of xenForo then it would be best to put xenForo in a subdirectory.
