Hi,

I have shared hosting with one main website (wordpress) and a couple of subdomains. Main site is in the root (public_html).

When I install subdomain, cpanel put the instalation here: mysite.com/mysubdomain. I would like to have complete subdomain instalation files out of public_html, but keep the url mysite.com/mysubdomain.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards

I do not think that would be possible. You might be able to get away with manually creating that folder in your public_html and then use a url rewrite in the htaccess to rewrite it back to the subdomain.

Agree with @DennisMidjord however, you still won't also be able to access the subdomain as mysite.com/mysubdomain without some kind of rewrite.

The only reason mysite.com/mysubdomain works is because that folder is within the documentroot for mysite.com. As noted by @GOT you'd need a rewrite in place to retain this URL if the mysubdomain folder is outside of public_html
