[Neos] Install Neos in subdirectory

Hi Matt,

I would strongly advise against that at the moment, because it is highly 
insecure then. Some sensitive and private data, like your database 
settings are stored in the other folder so you have to make absolutely 
sure that those are not accessible in any way. It will be very hard to 
do this without a vhost. If you want to try I would suggest a .htaccess 
in the neos folder that has a
deny all

in it and then change that again in the .htaccess in the Web folder.

Still you will have the subfolder in your URL then, there is no way 
around that as far as I know.
