Howdy,

I am trying to install Wordpress on a fresh account to an add-on domain.

In CPanel, I go to Wordpress Toolkit > Install WordPress (blue button)

In the installation path, the add-on domain is not available, only the subdomain that cpanel created for the add-on.

So, for example, the main account domain is mainaccount.com.
The add-on domain is addondomain.com
Cpanel created the subdomain "addondomain.mainaccount.com"

So in this example, I should be offered to install on "addondomain.com" but only "mainaccount.com" and "addondomain.mainaccount.com" are in the pull-down menu.

Am I supposed to just install onto the subdomain?

Thanks!

Great! So when I install on the subdomain, the WordPress installation will be installed on and resolving to the addon domain? Or will I need to update the WordPress Address (URL) to the addon domain within the WordPress admin area in Settings > General Settings?

The installation will take care of everything and install on the correct domain. It's just the Toolkit interface can't properly detect the addon domain in that dropdown list.

If that doesn't work how you expect just let me know, but when I tested on my end just now it installed how I anticipated.
