I need to add a subdomain to this server, i added this

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
    ServerName images.login.acorn.lt
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
    ServerName login.acorn.lt

config to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restarted with apachectl -k graceful , without error. But images.login.acorn.lt is down

  • Which effect do you expect? Both virtual hosts have the same document root. They will show the same content. – Matteo Jun 26 '14 at 10:41
  • images.login.acorn.lt doesn't work at all, i added same root just for the test @Matteo – Ben Jun 26 '14 at 10:42

In order to have images.login.acorn.lt to work you have to assign the same IP as login.acorn.lt (they have both to point to your address).

At the moment images.login.acorn.lt is not registered.

$ host login.acorn.lt
login.acorn.lt has address
$ host images.login.acorn.lt
Host images.login.acorn.lt not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
  • so how do i get it to do that? – Ben Jun 26 '14 at 10:56
  • By your DNS registrar. In the same way you registered login.acorn.lt – Matteo Jun 26 '14 at 10:57

You have register your custom sub-domain name with dns registrar to make it it working. I mean you need a valid DNS record for your subdomain too. You can accomplish this by either setting up an individual DNS entry for each new subdomain, But every namebasedvirtualhost has to have a valid DNS entry. Moreover custom domain name must be allowed on server.For Custom sudomain domain name you have to specify and register proper dns.
