    hey all,

    Wanting some help here please. I want to install XenForo on xenforo.mydomain.com instead of mydomain.com/xenforo.

    I currently have WordPress installed on the root.

    Any help to achieve this would be really appreciated!

    Make a folder called XenForo on mydomain.com and install XF there.
    You will have mydomain.com/XenForo
    In the site's control panel make XenForo to be a subdomain.
    Your forum will be accessible as mydomain.com/XenForo and XenForo.mydomain.com

    What control panel do you have? What you are looking for is called sub domain just look for that in the manual how to set it up.

    Hmmm... Seems like you'd simply need to install the XF into the directory of your choice - then simply add a sub-domain via cPanel. And not particularly in that order mind you. You probably should create the sub-domain first and simply add it as the url to the XF install. Should be a rather simple process using cPanel.

    HTH,

    With plesk its different you’ll need to make sub domain and system tells you where to upload your files. But it’s basically the same idea.

    Thanks for your replies! Apologies forgot to mention what CP I am using (cPanel).

    Okay, so I have installed XenForo on /community - however, I would like the URL to constantly stay on the subdomain (community.mydomain) - whenever I visit community.mydomain, there is a re-direction to /community.

    #1 Are you sure that you created that subdomain?
    #2 "Visitors cannot view your subdomain immediately. Changes to DNS records may require two days or more to reach all of the nameservers on the Internet."

    Then you have to wait for a few hours/days.

    I'm pretty sure I said this at about noon with a pot of coffee and a slice of pie lmao. 1:30 am would present an entirely different list of edibles/drinkables.

    But damn! Apple pie would be good right NOW!
