I recently added a subdomain m.domain.co.za and it just does not show, I defined the domain on the apache hosting server and added the relevant dns records but somehow it is still not working. The root domain works but not the subdomain. I'm using powerdns on a centos machine.
When I PING domain.co.za it gets a respone. If I ping m.domain.co.za I get no response
The setup looks as follows.
record TTL TYPE value m 28800 CNAME domain.co.za
On the hosting server my virtualhost file looks like this
<VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /var/www/html/m.domain.co.za ServerName m.domain.co.za ServerAlias www.m.domain.co.za ServerAdmin email@example.com DirectoryIndex default.php default.htm default.html index.html index.htm index.php index.php5 index.php4 index.php3 index.shtml index.cgi index.pl index.jsp Default.htm Default.php </VirtualHost>
the folder m.domain.co.za exists
http -t showed no errors
If I use nslookup
I get the following
work@work-laptop:~$ nslookup m.domain.co.za Server: 10.0.2.2 Address: 10.0.2.2#53 ** server can't find m.domain.co.za: NXDOMAIN
The live site is on the same server as the syub domain, that's why I used CNAME
