Hi folks, a beginner to Dreamhost here. This is the first of my various small questions.
I just created a discussion list and began the process of setting up pdpBB forums on my account. I can see from the comments in the KBase that there is some DH manual work done to set up databases and that the “mysql.xxx.com” subdomain should not be a pre-existing subdomain in my account.
Further, “lists.xxx.com” did not show up as a sumdomain in my account when I created my first discussion list. In retrospect, I want to use “mailman.xxx.com” as I have seen others do.
My questions are this: first, is there DH manual work involved (I sure do not like creating and destroying in test runs if it is gonna annoy someone :o); second, can the subdomain pre-exist before I go and set up a couple of discussion lists?
I plan to delete my current discussion list, and I expect my “lists.xxx.com” thang to go away. I then plan to create a sub-domain “mailman.xxx.com” first, and once it is active create a discussion list. Is this correct thinking on procedure?
