I have a Web Design and Linux Development site example.com and a subdomain howto page for Debian minimal install instructions, subdomain.example.com

I want to add another subdomain with WordPress installed for a friend's non-profit. I've manually installed WordPress before, but never as a subdomain.

    Yes... you can but what type of answer/information are you expecting? since a guide would be too broad. – Simon Hayter Jun 15 at 15:26

Yes, WordPress can be installed on a subdomain - in fact it might be the most common way to use WordPress. Just input your custom subdomain name instead of the usual www subdomain when you set up the install.

For DNS all you should need is one A or CNAME record, which won't affect your main domain or any of your other subdomains.
