How to add a subdomain to an internal page of a Plesk droplet

Here is the situation I have: First I have a Droplet where Plesk is running. There I have a web site that for the moment uses a domain I got from Namecheap. On the other hand, I have an application running on an App Platform which has an important domain because there runs an official website of an institution. I would like to create a subdomain of this important domain that points to an application in the App Platform in order to assign it to this internal page of the Plesk droplet. What has happened to me is that when I create the subdomain and I indicate the IP of the Plesk droplets it sends me to the login page of Plesk administration and I want the internal page in Plesk to be the one that has this subdomain and remove the one it has now. Thanks for enlightening me on this matter

But what would be the configuration of the subdomain from Digital Ocean? I can create a subdomain there but what should I add in the records configuration for this to be possible? I assign it with no problem in plesk but I need to do the configuration from the DO panel when I create the subdomain and there I can not configure the records for this case, because if I assign the ip to a record A it sends me to the PLESK login. If I did it from Namecheap I would have no problem because I add a glue record.

Heya @borisbarzotto,

If I understand correcrtly, you’ll need to add the subdomain you created to be displayed on the Plesk droplet. To do so, you need to add the subdomain as part of the Apache configuration file which Plesk should be using to display the content.
