Question

Subdomain with different DocumentRoot

I’m trying to set up a subdomain of blog.mysite.com which will direct to a DocumentRoot different from the default DocumentRoot set up to show at mysite.com.

I have the VirtualHost set up for this, and I have my DNS records set up for this, but it still appears to not be working.

Any suggestions on troubleshooting?

Hey there,

You can create a virtualhost configuration just for blog.mysite.com with it’s own DocumentRoot location. Here is a tutorial for Ubuntu and we have another tutorial that focuses on CentOS.

Happy coding,
