I have very similar problem

I have deployed on dokku and I NEED subdomain to point to the same app.

also I have (deployed on dokku) but somehow always points to this app instead of root…

Did you manage to workaround this?

For other folks who may run into this, this should solve the issue:

domains:add name_of_site www.domainname.extension

And, if you happen to be running Django, be sure to add “.domainname.extension” to your ALLOWED_HOSTS settings.

Ok it turns out that eveytime I push this get overwritten. SO need another solution

I tried dokku-domains-plugin but didn’t seem to work. <br> <br>So in nginx.conf for my second app I changed <br> <br>server_name; <br> <br>to <br> <br>server_name; <br> <br>I think this should be fine when I push changes but as I understand will no longer work if I delete my second app and add back again? - I am new to nginx / dokku so just feeling my way at the moment

@jamie: You might want to check out the dokku-domains-plugin: <br> <br>

@maestrrr I copied from .ssh/ and pasted in the input field that you get when first setting up Dokku. <br>

Check your webserver configuration file, or if you want post it here to help you.
