Shared hosting

I'm working with a joomla site that is on a shared host. They have it set up like

public_html - The main site is in this root using wordpress
-- Site 1 - This is another wordpress site in a folder
-- Site 2 - This is a joomla site I am working with.

I've noticed that google webmaster tools has been showing crawl errors such as


Both of those appear to be from the wordpress site in the root. (there is no blog on the joomla site).. If I search google for swf?rts I find wordpress sites and pages not found.

My suggestion to them is to simply purchase another hosting plan for $5/month and have the site moved there.

I would think that this type of thing would kill sites in the serps. I'm not sure I can fix it from the joomla site without going crazy with the htaccess.

Anyway, I just thought I'd throw this out there. Again, I think the best thing to do is to put it on another hosting account. Trying to run 3 sites on a five buck a month account might be pushing things a bit.

/rambling mode.

are these sites intended to be configured for separate hostnames or for subdirectories?

Separate hostnames/domains.. not subdirectories.

However, I would suspect that something isn't configured properly in the server.
