I have a website using an installation of WordPress and I would now like to create a mobile site m.mysite.com. I've managed to create the subdomain, but I was wondering how I go about using wordpress installation from my main site to populate this one with content. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Most newer Wordpress themes are mobile enabled meaning that the site will be optimized for whatever viewing device visitors are using. The downside is that viewers would be redirected to the url that you spelled out in Wordpress.

If you want to use 'm.mysite.com' to host a smaller portion of the content from 'mysite.com' then the I would suggest creating a new site and transferring the existing website over. We have some instructions that could be used to make this easier. You would need to change the database names, but should be pretty straight forward.

Once you have the new application you can make the relevant changes that you want like a different theme and reduced content.
