My problem is very similar to the one presented by HenryWilfredd.
The answers submitted do not tell me where my html  files should go.
when i try my subdomain i see the same message as indicated below.
Are DNS records need, if so can an example be provided?
Are manual changes to http.conf need?

I am not asking the question very well. Sorry. I have built websites. I have never used subdomains before and am unable to get past a startup problem

I have created subdomains using Plesk. When I create a subdomain, Plesk build the subdomain as a copy of the parent domain. If I go out to look at it at sub.domain.com I get a message that says:
 "You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/. Note that until you do so, people visiting your website will see this page, and not your content. To prevent this page from ever being used, follow the instructions in the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf.

You are free to use the images below on an Apache and Red Hat powered HTTP server. Thanks for using Apache and Red Hat Enterprise Linux!"
The file referenced .../etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf.... is NOT in that location so I am unable to get past this APACHE startup message. I have copied an updated httpdocs to the new subdomain but the apache startup message continues.

How do I get started with rthis subdomain?
