Create your subdomain in cPanel and then follow the WordPress Installation Instructions.

While this is an old topic, I am facing a similar issue (if not the same). I have a WordPress site at monicaburns.com. I've opened up a side business (Maroli Designs) for other authors that I'd like to distance from my author side of the house. I'd like to use a subdomain to accomplish that. I had a subdomain 10 years ago on my host server, but my memory is faulty on the entire issue.So here are my questions.

 

  1. I know I can create a subdomain that is named differently. In this case, marolidesigns.monicaburns.com. Can I install WordPress with a different theme on the Maroli subdomain without causing conflicts with my main site, which is also WordPress. I can't afford to mess with my current site.
     
  2. If I can install a second instance of WordPress without any conflicts with my main site, what root directory do I use when I create the subdomain.  Is there a help file that will walk me through the process of creating a new subdomain and then installing WordPress and a new theme solely for the Maroli site without any conflicts? I did a search of the forum, but keep getting flood control messages when I'm trying to search.
     
  3. I'm pretty sure I don't have to acquire a domain name for marolidesigns.monicaburns.com (I want to be transparent that I'm also an author when they visit the subdomain), but could someone confirm that or direct me to info that would verify/explain that topic.
     
  4. Finally, does Softaculous do the complete WordPress install for me? I know how to import WordPress themes and other backend stuff, but I've not done an actual WordPress install. If Softaculous doesn't do it for me, is there a help file somewhere that will guide me through the install process on my subdomain, or do I need to have an expert do the install. 

Thanks for your help.

 

Monica

1) Yes

 

2) Not sure what you mean here, but, if you create the subdomain the regular way through cpanel, there should be no problems at all.

 

3) Correct.

 

4) Yes it should. Just make sure you instruct Softaculos to install it in the correct subfolder/domain.
