How to install new wordpress site to URL newsite.mydomain.com

I've done it before, I think using Softaculous, but it's been a while. Now when I start Softaculous, it asks me if  I want to use a sub-directory to install the new site. This will give me a new URL mydomain.com/newWPsite.

However I want the URL newWPsite.mydomain.com. I can't figure how to do this using Softaculous. Does it mean I have to do a manual WP install? Create the new sub-directory first, then manually install WP in it? I don't remember how to go through this process, and hope to get help here.

Thank you very much for any forthcoming help.

Hello Davvy,


Thanks for your question about installing a WordPress site with Softaculous to a subdomain.  First, you need to define the subdomain in cPanel.  You can go into the Domains portion of your cPanel and create a subdomain there.  When it's created, then you will be able to select the subdomain when installing WordPress in Softaculous. 

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.


Kindest Regards,
