Second Website on Subdomain

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

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

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/

UseCanonicalName On

<VirtualHost *:80>


        DocumentRoot /var/www/sanaltur/

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

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


Then I used:

  1. a2ensite

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
