[pmwiki-users] OT: Creating a subdomain without CPanel

Now that CPanel has lost my trust,...
I'd like to create another subdomain / wiki field so the URL is
www.newdomain.onebit.ca (which maps to www.onebit.ca/newdomain) .
- create the directory
- copy the .htaccess file from a working field
- search and replace the field name in that .htaccess file
- repeat for local/config.php
- use CPanel to create the subdomain name, link it to the new field, and
tell the world.
I know I've done it successfully before.
After Monday's adventure, though,...
If I use CPanel to do it, will it touch my carefully-crafted (and not
fully understood) .htaccess files? Or anything else? I'd like to
double-check all of them.
Is it reasonable to do it without CPanel? What all would I have to do?
Can I even do it directly? If answer is "CPanel is by far the easiest,"
I don't need tons of details to prove it.
(I've already downloaded a complete system backup. I only make that
mistake twice a year.)
