Question

Second subdomain NOT working

I used the wild card CNAME * @ DNS entry and my root domain.com and sub1.domain.com are accessible (on the same droplet). But if I try to access sub2.domain.com, after web server configuration, it takes me to sub1.domain.com. I’m using NginX server blocks and all domains are using the same IP address. (I’ve configured domain.com on 80 while I access/configure subs like sub1.domain.com:8088 and sub2.domain.com:8088)

phpmyadmin: http://pastebin.com/gjsf0tYZ piwik: http://pastebin.com/DQLCjKqX

My /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1   localhost mydomain

::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

Hitting in the browser phpmyadmin.mydomain.com:8088 works fine but hitting stats.mydomain.com:8088 takes me to phpmyadmin login page. Do I need to create A records for more than 1 sub.domain.com?

Thanks for the heads up.
I found in the error log that it couldn’t find the directory /var/log/nginx/piwik/
After creating that directory, it’s working fine, phew.

It might be easier to get a control panel to handle the virtual hosts.

These are some popular ones: https://vestacp.com http://www.webmin.com

I’ve gotten subdomains to work in just a few minutes using Vesta CP, as long as the nameserver for your domain is set to use your server’s dns.

Thanks @astarr for replying. I did not change fastcgi_params and I’m still trying to figure out the problem…
