I would like 'fake' a subdomain.

If the user enters:  someUsername.mysite.com

I would like the actual page to be:

mysite.com/?someUsername

Also have more questions, but will save them for once this gets working.

Thanks

You may try something like this:

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.*$ /%1

replace example.com with your domain

In my config file?

Yes; you could either put it in your httpd.conf if you have access to it, or in your .htaccess file.  You may have to add the following line before the code I provided above:
RewriteEngine On

so:
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.*$ /\?%1

JamesCssl:

I tried this, and it did not work. I think it's because I am already using a subdomain:

dev.mysite.com

so, I suppose I can't use :  username.dev.mysite.com ?

So, changing it to:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(.+)\.dev\.example\.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^.*$ /\?%1

doesn't work?
