Cname redirect

dreamobjects

#1

i’m trying to emulate what I had set up with amazon which was images.mydomain.com

i edited the cname value to: bucket.objects.dreamhost.com.

i did a propagation check and am getting this confirmed as the cname value.

i can type in bucket.objects.dreamhost.com/file.jpg in my browser and retrieve the public file as expected.

however, when i typed images.mydomain.com/file.jpg I got a NoSuchBucket error.

When i did a tracert to images.mydomain.com I noticed it resolves to just objects.dreamhost.com (no bucket appended as 4th level domain opposed to the record lookup which did have the bucket appended)

I then typed in objects.dreamhost.com/file.jpg in the browser and get the NoSuchBucket error as well which leads me to believe this is the url the redirect is hitting instead, as the bucket is obviously present and working when i access it directly.

so it seems to me that my images.mydomain.com is not redirecting with the bucket appended as the 4th level domain despite the record lookup showing that it is. am I doing something incorrectly with the cname value? i am not terribly familiar with the cname entries so i’m assuming it’s a me problem.
