Hello,

What I would do in this case is to just get rid of the subdomain and move my files to a subfolder under my main site. So it would be something like this:

  • Copy all of your files from your sub domain’s document root to a subfolder in your main site’s document root directory in.
  • Then backup your database
  • After that run a search and replace for your database to change https://xxxxx.YYYYY.co.th/ to https://YYYYY.co.th/xxxxx

Or another approach would be to have a reverse proxy setup in your Apache, so that whenever someone accesses https://YYYYY.co.th/xxxxx they would see the content of https://xxxxx.YYYYY.co.th/

Here’s more information on how to setup and use reverse proxy:
