need subdomain help

bmlsayshi's picture

Can someone please walk me through setting up subdomains? I currently have the Turnkey Wordpress Appliance and a properly permissioned directory I made for the subdomain.

I cannot seem to get a subdomain to work. I've tried adding this to apache2.conf at the bottom, but all I end up with is "This webpage is not available"

 

<VirtualHost *>
ServerName subdomain.domain.tld
DocumentRoot directory/goes/here
</VirtualHost>

I believe that you have to set up subdomains on your DNS server as well.

Assuming you have your domain through a third party domain registrar, you should log on to their site and find the instructions for adding a CNAME record for your subdomain.
