I am new to wordpress and need some help. I currently have a website being developed on a parent directory using Softaculous that has WordPress installed. I would like to have a portal to a subdomain that has a different layout and database.
The website is NOT live, thus I have it directed to a temporary URL that is working. I did install wordpress to the subdomain, but I cannot access the admin page of WP or any of its other pages manually, for example the wp-admin.php page and wp-login.php page. I have checked the wp-config.php file and .htaccess files and saw that that the database linked to the subdomain was the wrong one. Once I fixed the database link in the wp-config.php file it did seem to work, but now it was "merging" or "overwriting" the original installation in the parent directory, even though the subdomain files are in a new directory. I am not sure what to do at this point. Thank you for your help.
