    Will any page I create be served from the database and appear as: http://www.domain.com/Development/whateverpage.html ?
    If the settings are:
    WordPress Address URL: http://www.domain.com/CMS/
    Site Address URL: http://www.domain.com/Development/

    Yes, the page URL will be http://www.domain.com/Development/page-slug/


    The “Site Address (URL)” setting is the address you want people to type in their browser to reach your WordPress blog.

    You can set the site address to your domain root and run the old non-WP site in parallel, as long as there is not other index file (index.php/htm/html/etc) except WordPress’ index.php

    However, it is not recommended because it would be messy (old mix new).

    IF you are developing a new WordPress site to replace the existing website, I would suggest you to install WordPress development site into a subdomain.domain.com
