Below is a small tutorial to try this out :-
1. Install the WordPress with its famous 3 click install at www.example.com/folder.
2. Copy the index.php and .htaccess files from the WordPress directory (www.example.com/folder) into the root directory of your site.
3. Edit the index.php file with a txt editor and replace (‘./wp-blog-header.php’) with (‘./folder/wp-blog-header.php’). Basically it points the index file to the one installed in the folder directory.
