Installing WordPress On Subdomain Using cPanel

In this post, I’ll show how to install WordPress on a subdomain using the softaculous installer in cPanel of Linux Web Hosting. This is very simple, you just have to follow the steps given below.

I assume you already have a hosting account with a domain associated to it. So just log into your web hosting account and open the Control Panel (cPanel) of Linux hosting. Some hosts hide cPanel under the name ‘Manage Web Hosting‘.

Creating Sub-Domain

Once you open cPanel, navigate or scroll down to the ‘Domains‘ section. Here select the subdomains option and a new page will open up.

You can straightaway figure out how to create a subdomain, but if you can’t then keep reading. On the subdomains page, you can find ‘Create a subdomain‘ section. Check the screenshot given below –

All you need to do is just enter the subdomain name and select the domain. In this case, I have chosen the domain as codefap.com and the subdomain as lab. And do not mess with the document root, it will be automatically created once you enter the subdomain.

After entering subdomain and domain in the form, just hit Create button. In this case, a subdomain with link lab.codefap.com will be created for me.
