I'd like some help please in learning how to create DNS records using the WordPress appliance on Amazon. Here's what I'm trying to do:
We have a live server on the internet that has a small number of sites running WordPress multisite.
We need to rebuild this WordPress multisite installation, and I'm hoping to use Turnkey WordPress on Amazon as a place to build a clone of the real system which can then be migrated out to the live environment.
Let's say my parent site is parent.com and the sub-sites are subsiteA.com and subsiteB.com.
I have to use the actual domain names in both environments. What I had planned to do was to edit the hosts file on a PC so that visiting parent.com, subsiteA.com and subsiteB.com go the the IP address (elastic) of my Turnkey Cloud Appliance.
For that to work I need to be able to create A records and CNAME records and sub-domains on the server appliance itself so that traffic is routed appropriately. I don't want these records to be created in any sort of public DNS system because there's still a real live site out there that needs to carry on working.
I'm used to using Advanced DNS Editor in Cpanel on other servers. Where do I find/install/activate/access something like that on Turnkey WordPress EC2?
Thanks in advance
