I just installed Gerrit on my Debian server (Linode) and can't get the canonical URL to work.

Relevant log information (anonymized):

[2010-09-13 17:48:06,550] INFO : Started Gerrit SSHD on
[2010-09-13 17:48:06,550] INFO  org.eclipse.jetty.util.log : jetty-7.0.2.v20100331

[2010-09-13 17:48:07,029] INFO : Gerrit Code Review 2.1.5 ready

During Gerrit's init, here's the relevant information from the SSH terminal:

*** SSH Daemon

Listen on address              [XXX.XXX.XXX.XX]: 
Listen on port                 [29418]: 

*** HTTP Daemon

Behind reverse proxy           [y/N]?

Listen on address              [XXX.XXX.XXX.XX]: 
Listen on port                 [8180]: 
Canonical URL                  []: 

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong here?

Doi. I had not yet set up the A record for the subdomain. Simple answer for a seemingly complex question.
