I'm trying to do a mod rewrite that will globally rewrite all subdomains to subdirectories unless it is www or example. The below code doesn't seem to work for some reason.
RewriteEngine On
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+).vsssl.com$
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
#This stops it from looping
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/home/vsssl/public_html/
 
#Finally, this is the actual rewrite
RewriteRule (.*) /home/vsssl/public_html/%1/$1 [Last]

Try this:
RewriteEngine On
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www|example)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
#This stops it from looping
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^/home/vsssl/public_html/
 
#Finally, this is the actual rewrite
RewriteRule (.*) /home/vsssl/public_html/%1/$1 [Last]

no, it didn't work. In fact members.vsssl.com just goes to document root.

Are you using httpd.conf or .htaccess?

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

"#This stops it from looping"

this stops your rewrite.
RewriteEngine On
 
#Grab the subdomain from the domain
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
 
#Make sure the subdomain is not www or example
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
 
#Check if the directory actually exists before we go there
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
 
RewriteCond %1<>%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^[^<]+<>/home/vsssl/public_html/\1/
 
RewriteRule ^(.*) /%1/$1 [Last]

The .htaccess gave me a internal configuration error. Here's one I created for one subdomain, I don't know if that helps. Maybe you could modify this one since it's working?

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   ^[www\.]*members.vsssl.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/members/.*
RewriteRule   ^(.*)  /members/$1  [L]

The capturing group was missing,
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\.vsssl\.com$
RewriteCond %{1} !^(www|example)$
RewriteCond /home/vsssl/public_html/%1 -d
RewriteCond %1<>%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^([^<]+)<>/home/vsssl/public_html/\1
RewriteRule ^(.*) /%1/$1 [Last]
