How to install sendy on a subdomain?

Posted March 26, 2014 10.9k views
It's my first time interacting with a server, so please bear with me... I want to install sendy (http://sendy.co/get-started) on a subdomain of a site I currently host on Heroku. I use a ubuntu 12.04 + Lamp droplet. I uploaded the provided 'sendy' folder to ```var/www/sendy```. I also used my DNSimple account to create a CNAME and A records that both redirect my subdomain to the server IP address. When I go to ```mysubdomain.mydomain.com/sendy```, nothing happens. Can anyone help me figure out what I'm missing here?

Turns out I had an extra config.php in the root of my Sendy application. The 2 config.php were in conflict.
Deleted one of them and now it works.Turns out I had an extra config.php in the root of my Sendy application. The 2 config.php were in conflict.

Seems you will have to update Apache setup and include the subdomain there.
Installing Sendy is little tricky. For us it took around 2 months to properly understand, but, fortunately, we came across a service called EasySendy, which automated everything for us.

I’ve documented this exact case in a complete guide to installing Sendy. I’ve included a lot of detail that helps you understand what you are doing, and why. Please check it out here:
