How to have wordpress blog on different server and pointing to a subdomain

Hi

I have a rails app on heroku at www.mydomain.com

Ive created a droplet here on DO with the one click wordpresss 13.10 installer.

When prompted for a hostname I chose blog.mydomain.com

What else do I need to do? Currently I can’t even access the wordpress install using my ip address.

How do i get blog.mydomain.com to point to the droplets ip address?
