Ok phranque, you really didn't want to make it any easier ! ;-)
My site already handles the two languages via data stored in a cookie, with an on-page language selector. This is "simply" a language choice and not a geolocation choice, enabling non-french speakers to still be able to benefit from the content.
Using a sub-domain approach would indeed ensure that the existing functionality of the site would be left untouched.
However, on a LAMP hoster with CPanel, I am unsure as to how to set this up without duplicating the physical file data.
Any advice ?
