Question

How do I create a subdomain and use the same database as in my primary domain?

I’m new to apache.

I want to create a client area like client.mysite.com using WP database connected to mysite.com. I’ve just configured the DNS for client and wilcard of *.client, but I have no clue what to do after.

What would be the best way to go about it?

The Apache web server uses virtualhost configurations to handle and route content for multiple domain or subdomain names. This guide will assist you in setting this up.

You wont need to do anything special in regards to the database. MySQL does not do virtualhosts and considers all connections to it the same regardless of the DNS name used.
