No install path for Wordpress?


#1

I’m trying to do a very standard thing, which is to install Wordpress to a /blog subdirectory.

Surely this must be possible.

Most web hosts have a 1-click install to any path you want. How is this so hard on Cloudways?


#2

you can simply do it by install WP in sub folder and pass rule in .htaccess file. Manage separately from wp-config and DB.


#3

You mean… manually install Wordpress? Yeah sure. I can do that on DO too. That’s not really the Cloudways value added though.

Getting a WP install set up in a subdirectory on CW isn’t nearly as straightforward as you’d hope it would be, @jroven.

It’s a pretty manual process - CW just isn’t set up to handle this process well at the moment. I haven’t heard if there are any plans to improve it.

Here’s a solid walkthrough of how to do it with SSH commands, and covering dealing with the database.

Hope that’s of some use.
