Select the domain you want to install WP on. If you want to install your WP site into a subdirectory of your root domain, choose your domain and type the subdirectory name (such as “blog”) after the forward slash ( / ). You must have a subfolder with that name already created in your file manager.

Root Directory Example:

Click on Check Domain.
