Question

I can't setup a subdomain in my server.

Posted March 5, 2014 2.1k views
Hi, i'm trying to setup a subdomain, read all tutorials and forum questions but really don't understand what's wrong. I've created the virtualhost for the domain and subdomain on /etc/apache2/sites-available/default like this: ServerAdmin paulo@example.org.br DocumentRoot "/var/www/example" ServerName www.example.org.br ServerAlias example.org.br DocumentRoot "/var/www/sub" ServerName www.sub.example.org.br ServerAlias sub.example.org.br And then I run a2ensite and restarted apache, but the browser doesn't recognize the subdomain. Do I have to do any DNS setting? Or change any other files? Thanks you all.

yes, you are right. you need to add DNS record to your subdomain under your domain DNS settings.
