Dreamhost app on xxx.domain.com rather than www.domain.com/xxx
I'm trying to do an install of wordpress on my domain, but can't see how to do an Advanced install (so i can add plugins and control upgrades), but have the address as blog.domain.com.

Is there a way to do this or am I going to have to do some kind of redirect/rewrite?

Thanks,
Aziz

1) Go to "Manage Domains" and create the subdomain you want to install WordPress on.

2) Install WordPress to this newly created (sub)domain.

3) Profit.

You must read /.

Thanks. I had missed the 'create subdomain' bit. I had assumed that adding a DNS entry under blog.domain.com would suffice.

In general, the only time you'll ever need to dig into DNS manually is if you're trying to hook your domain to something external. We always generate DNS entries internally for anything that's managed by our system.

I don't anymore, but I did for a while. Does it show? Smile
