Subdomain Configuration, Plesk 7, DNS
Posted on 2008-11-04
I'm having issues understanding the setup of a subdomain on my server. I want to create a subdomain for our forum. Very simply: forum.mydomain.com...
A) mydomain.com/forum // My forum installation and files are properly working in this directory right now.
B) forum.mydomain.com // I would like for this subdomain to map to A). Is this possible?
I've created the subdomain through my Control Panel successfully. Now, on my host management account, I had to add a new DNS record to support my subdomain. CNAME : forum.mydomain.com - all works great till I visit forum.mydomain.com I get a standard plesk holding page. So I log into the root of the server and I see that there is a folder 'subdomains' and inside of it is the forum directory.
At this point, I really do not want to re-install my forum into this new directory. It was my understanding that the subdomain could be mapped to a folder at the website root. Is this not accurate? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
