How to setup a subdomain & install WP into it


I have an existing live site on my server. I would like to do the following:
a) setup a subdomain (
b) install a new Wordpress in the subdomain.

I’ve done this in cpanel. How do you do this on Cloudways? Detailed steps would be very much appreciated. Thanks.


Go to

Click “Add Application”

Select your existing server

Select the Wordpress version from “Select application” menu

Name your App (i.e. “Staging”)

Click “Add Application”

In your new application, go to the “Domain Management” section ( i.e.

Type the full domain in “Primary Domain.” I.E. “

Click “Save Changes.”

Then you had to go to you registrar and add a cname for the subdomain so that web browsers can find it.


Thanks, I’ll give that a try.
