I can't setup a subdomain in my server.

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:

<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin DocumentRoot “/var/www/example” ServerName ServerAlias </VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *.80> DocumentRoot “/var/www/sub” ServerName ServerAlias </VirtualHost>

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.
