Setup sub-domain from a different host pointed to droplet running Apache
Given I have an
example.com domain hosted on a different name-server different from Digital Ocean’s. Tutorials and links say to add an A record for the sub-domain using the DNS manager of the current host. I did that and added an
app.example.com sub-domain and pointed it to the IP address of the droplet running the application to be hosted on the sub-domain.
Now, the A records look like so
Zone id. ************ Record Id *********** Name app.example.com Class IN Type A Status Active Value dropletIPAddressHere TTL 7200 Creation Date 2019-05-15 03:54:22.909377
Now, in my droplet, I have Apache configured like so
ServerName app.example.com ServerAlias www.app.example.com ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/html/public <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> <Directory /var/www/html> AllowOverride All </Directory>
However, I still can’t reach the application through the sub-domain URL but using it’s IP address things work just fine. Is there anything I still need to do on my end? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
