Installing Wordpress to a Subdomain
So I'm fairly new to Wordpress development and I'm just curious if there are any significantly different hurdles to jump through to install Wordpress on a subdomain instead of the root directory. Anything I should know about that needs to be done differently?
I'm asking about if I have my own domain say www.julian.com and I want to install wordpress to a subdomain of that so say:
Is that possible? Is there anything different about it than just installing to the root directory?

You can do this and there is not any difference, everything will work properly. Almost all of my Treehouse WP example sites are in subdirectories.
I think what you want is called a subdirectory, not a subdomain, don't quote me on it :P
Also, as far as I know the process is the same, but you will need to create/specify the folder you are installing WordPress in.
