I am interested to understand if, by any chance, getting a Sugar CRM installation in the folder that is situated within the same folder as Joomla! installation could/may cause future problems.

Folder structure:

C:\JoomlaFolder <- Joomla! installation folder
  \administrator
  \cache
  \cli
  \components
  \...many other folders and sub-folders specific to Joomla!
  \SugarCRMFolder <- here's where my Sugar CRM installation is located!
    \..many folders and sub-folders specific to Sugar CRM

I'm not sure what Sugar CRM is? If it's not associated with Joomla, it'll make no troubles for you personally.

Go to site.com to gain access to Joomla, and site.com/administrator to giving your website, in addition to going to Sugar CRM by site.com/SugarCRMFolder and site.com/SugarCRMFolder/admin as admin area
