Plesk change subdomain root

I'm trying to change the root directory of a subdomain. With a vhost.conf file I can get it to work on a top level domain just not with a subdomain.

With a top level domain I create a vhost.conf file like this...

# start vhost.conf
DocumentRoot /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/app/webroot/
<Directory /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/app/webroot/>
php_admin_value safe_mode 0
php_admin_value open_basedir
# options
Options Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
# .htaccess so cake's urls work properly
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
# end vhost.conf

and then % /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=domain.com

to apply the changes. I tried making a vhost.conf in my subdomain's conf directory but that doesn't seem to do anything.

Not so sure about Plesk, but this documentation suggests there is a script you need to run so that the new vhost.conf gets detected and added as an include for the main httpd.conf.
