How to setup subdomain/multisite openlitespeed wordpress version

Hello, I’ve been trying to setup a subdomain on my droplet but even the subdomain redirects to the main domain.

The setup is a main domain installed that it’s working on but as I need another instace of wordpress. I’m trying to setup another wordpress website in this url: “” and so far I’ve already setup the DNS record in cloudflare like:

A - -
A - -

Also configured 2 virtual hosts: - /var/www/html - /var/www/html/portfolio-websites/ecommerce-example

And I’ve setup those both virtual hosts on listeners following the same name and pointing to the correct virtual host. But everytime I try to connect into the subdomain instance, I’m redirect to the main domain.

Hi there,

As far as I can see you don’t have an active A record setup for the subdomain that you’ve shared.

It looks like that you are using the Cloudflare nameservers which means that you need to add the DNS record on their end.

Once you add the A record for your subdomain name it might take up to a few hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the new records.

You can use this tool here to do DNS lookups:
