Sub Domains

Hello How can I create a sub domain…

I have a directory www.example.com/phpbb

I want it to appear as

phpbb.example.com

You add hosting for the subdomain at “Domains>Manage Domains”.

Thanks, for the quick reply…

But in the "Domain to host: _____"
what do I input phpbb.example.com or just ‘phpbb’

when I input it becomes ‘Specify your web directory: /home/username/phpbb/’

Do I upload phpbb in the /home/username/phpbb again via FTP.
I have no probs uploading it again.

Are you installing from One-Click Installs or by yourself?

If you install from One-Click Installs, you will need to specify a directory where you want to install to. For example:

Install to: http://www.yourdomain.com/phpbb

PHPBB will be installed to /home/username/yourdomain.com/phpbb directory where you can access via http://www.yourdomain.com/phpbb

If you already installed it via One-Click Installs, you DO NOT need to upload it again. It will be automatically installed in your specified directory.

Btw, if you want to host any files, they must go into “yourdomain.com” folder. If you upload them outside this folder like /home/username/phpbb, they are not available to public.

In your Panel:

Domains > Manage Domains > Add New Domain/Sub-Domain

In Domain to host: add your subdomain (phpbb.example.com)
“Specify your web directory” will be filled in automagically.

Select your existing user or create a new one.

Choose the settings you prefer for the account and press [color=#0000CC]Fully host this domain now![/color]

Upload your forum into the new phpbb.example.com folder and run the setup routine.
