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

Posted April 9, 2014 2.8k views
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?

Hi Adam,

You need to set up your DNS to point blog.mydomain.com to your IP address. There's a tutorial that shows how to do this using the DigitalOcean DNS panel:
