Sub-Server or new Create Virtual Server

I currently have a portal that’s a Wordpress page on my existing site at

The portal is now so important to me I want to make it a site on its own, as a subdomain like

Technically that’s a subdomain, but I want to be able to move this Wordpress site around and have no real dependancies on the main site- so I should maybe create a whole new virtual server?

Is that correct or is there other considerations please?

OS type and version Ubuntu Linux 22.04.1
Webmin version 2.001
Virtualmin version 7.3-1 Pro
Related packages Wordpress

You should create a whole new virtual server, unless you want one management user and home dir for both.

Sub-servers are about ownership and management. They have nothing to do with the name of it. A subdomain is just a name to Virtualmin. It does not care what you name your virtual servers (there are some bits where Virtualmin can manage subdomain names as part of the parent zone, in a sub-server situation, but that’s mostly irrelevant from a user perspective and not necessarily a good thing).

thanks for the clear and helpful answer, I’ll do as you recommend
