CNAME domainA.com to app.domainB.com on dokku vps

  • Posted October 6, 2014

Hi,

I configured a dokku vps with several apps on subdomains like this: domainA.com to vps ip - A record *.domainA.com to vps ip - A record wildcard

And I can access every app at *.domainA.com, which is fine. I then configured a CNAME for another domain to point to one of the apps like this: domainB.com to www.domainB.com - 301 redirect of naked domain to www www.domainB.com to app2.domainA.com - CNAME record.

However the dokku nginx is serving the first app in alphabetic order. I think it is simply serving the first /home/dokku/*/nginx.conf it includes in /etc/nginx/conf.d/dokku.conf . So, is this the correct behavior? Or is something wrong with my DNS settings?

Thank you!

I eventually figured out what was happening: https://github.com/progrium/dokku/issues/710 I’ll probably need to look into some dokku plugins so I don’t need to edit this after each deploy.
