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?

quick question how did u copy the key to dokku before git push?

cat ~/.ssh/ | ssh "sudo sshcommand acl-add dokku" ?

Check your webserver configuration file, or if you want post it here to help you.
@maestrrr I copied from .ssh/ and pasted in the input field that you get when first setting up Dokku.
@jamie: You might want to check out the dokku-domains-plugin:
I tried dokku-domains-plugin but didn't seem to work.

So in nginx.conf for my second app I changed




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

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.
