    subdomain WP install, by tqfan


    I have my business site setup and have 25gb of server space and am currently using less than 1gb (lmao!) and I want to create a site for a club I am in. I thought instead of buying hosting for that site, I could create a subdomain and host as part of my business site.
    My host says I can install WP on the subdomain as well as the top domain, they said just create a folder and install in there.

    Is it really that easy?! I have created the folder, and when I go to it’s link, it pops up with a ‘not found’ page on my top domain site. So once I install WP in that folder, it will go to it instead? It won’t show my own site?

    I looked on another thread asking to do 4 separate installs, and answers included networking, but I think the separate installs would be the best way to go about it? As I want to keep them separate and let the person who runs the club have access to it, without having access to my own site.

    Also, could we then buy a domain name for the subdomain and redirect, will that work, also?

    Just don’t see the point in buying the hosting when I have all that space sitting there.

    Thanks =)
