Question

VirtualHost for subdomain not working?

Hi!

So I have successfully added a DNS record for my subdomain. Now I have access to “blog.mydomainname.com

I then created a new virtualhost for my subdomain in /etc/apache2/site-availables/000-default.conf :

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@example.com DocumentRoot /var/www/blog/ ServerName blog.example.com ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/blog/error.log </VirtualHost>

saved it and restarted apache.

But nothing changes… when I browse blog.mydomain.com it still shows my main website. Obviously i have created a new folder (“blog”) in /var/www and uploaded wordpress via FTP.

Am I missing something?

Thank you!

i followed the same method but it’s not working for me

I used another method but thank you for your time :) (it still doesn’t fully work though since I get a blank page)

Cheers

You need to create a new VirtualHost (new file)

Add

Change

  sudo service apache2 restart

Here you go
