I am trying to set up another website on a subdomain.

I have followed the tutorial and forum post below but got no results:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-do-i-add-sub-domain-and-make-it-point-to-a-certain-directory

I’ve a wordpress website running on /var/www/html. I have created another website on /var/www/sanaltur and created a apache config file as follows:

cat /etc/apache2/sites-available/sanaltur.tarikznursal.com.tr.conf

UseCanonicalName On

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin admin@mydomain.com

        ServerName sanaltur.tarikznursal.com.tr
        ServerAlias sanaltur.tarikznursal.com.tr

        DocumentRoot /var/www/sanaltur/

        <Directory /var/www/sanaltur/>
            Options FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted
        </Directory>

        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined



</VirtualHost>

Then I used:

  • a2ensite sanaltur.tarikznursal.com.tr.conf

command to enable the conf file.

Still, I can’t reach to subdomain.

Thank you for your help

Hi there @altugguzeloglu,

The configuration looks all correct. What you need to do is also add a DNS A record for your subdomain name to point to your Droplet’s IP address.

Once you add the A record for your domain, it might take up to 24-48 hours for the DNS cache to clear over the Globe before you could see the actual DNS changes.

Let me know how it goes!
Regards,
Bobby
