Hello. I’m a bit new to all this so please bare with me. I’ve set up Dokku with a very simple rails app following: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-dokku-one-click-digitalocean-image-to-run-a-ruby-on-rails-app
The app is toy-app and I’ve set Dokku to use subdomain like this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-dokku-application
My zone file is:
$TTL 1800 @ IN SOA NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. hostmaster.minhn.net. ( 1409595135 ; last update: 2014-09-01 18:12:15 UTC 3600 ; refresh 900 ; retry 1209600 ; expire 1800 ; ttl ) IN NS NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. @ IN A 184.108.40.206 *.minhn.net IN A 220.127.116.11 toy-app IN A 18.104.22.168 sample-app IN A 22.214.171.124 *.toy-app CNAME toy-app.minhn.net. *.sample-app CNAME sample-app.minhn.net.
I plan on having another app called sample-app and have sample-app.minhn.net go to that app. I want my minhn.net to lead to no where for now. But right now minhn.net and sample-app.minhn.net both goes to toy-app.minhn.net.
Why is this? Is it because the * A record I have? I thought that just meant anything before minhn.net would be forward to the ip but then dokku would check if it matches the subdomain name, if not it won’t serve the app?
Thanks for your time.
