Question

Map CNAME a subdomain to other subdomain on droplet

I am hosting 2 domains on one centos droplet. And I want to alias subdomain of domain one to a subdomain of domain two. Like this.

I want to use subdomain.domain1.com as alias to subdomain.domain2.com, so that subdomain.domain1.com shows content of subdomain.domain2.com. How to do that.

I have added this in DNS section of domain1.com CNAME subdomain subdomain.domain2.com.

But it’s not working. subdomain.domain1.com points to error page. It should show website on subdomain.domain2.com

Yes, that’s what I did. in DNS section of domain1.com added CNAME entry

subdomain subdomain.domain2.com.

But subdomain.domain1.com shows default centos/apache page. http://oi58.tinypic.com/547k35.jpg

I have also waited an hour, thought DSN might not have propagated so far. But it’s same result.

The CNAME record should look like this (on domain1.com):

subdomain.domain1.com points to error page

Can you post the exact error you get?
