Redmine Subdomain

  • Posted August 4, 2013

I have created a redmine droplet and setup a A Name Record in my DNS to point to the server. When Accessing the server by the IP the redmine is show, but when trying to access it threw the Subdomain a page saying it’s being installed is shown.

Any help on how to make it display properly would be great. I am not great with setting up servers so please give details on default location of config files in your response since I won’t know why they are at.
