I’d like to create multiple subdomains on my Dreamhost PS without having to add each one manually in the panel. It was suggested by support that this could be possible with wildcard DNS. I had them setup wildcard DNS on a domain so I could try this out.
My question is in regards to this page from the Dreamhost wiki: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Dynamic_Subdomains
So far I have done this:
- Enabled wildcard DNS for: mydomain.com
- Created a subdomains folder here: mydomain.com/subdomains
- Created a /test folder inside the /subdomains folder (mydomain.com/subdomains/test).
- Put an .htaccess file in mydomain.com/.htaccess containing the example in the wiki above (replacing example.com with mydomain.com)
I have completed all 4 steps above, but when I visit test.mydomain.com, I get this error in my browser:
“Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”
Does anybody have any idea what I could be doing wrong? Or if I may have missed a step?
