Is it possible to “map” (not sure if that’s the right term) my staging app so it’s in a subdirectory of my site? In other words, I want to be able to type https://mydomain.com/staging to go to the staging site.
Not if you want to keep the majority f the automatic features of Cloudways unfortunately, Tim.
Much easier and more standard on CW is to set up the staging app as a subdomain instead - staging.example.com. Would that be workable?
That’s accomplished in your DNS by creating a cName for staging that points to the app.
