How to install sendy on a subdomain?

  • Posted on March 26, 2014

It’s my first time interacting with a server, so please bear with me…

I want to install sendy ( 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, nothing happens.

Can anyone help me figure out what I’m missing here?

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:

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.
