Redirect Domain not Working


I have registered a new domain with Dreamhost and am looking to redirect it to a subdomain off of my main Dreamhost account. I have used the redirect option, and allowed time for the change to take effect, but when I enter the domain name into my browser, I get the following message:

Site Temporarily Unavailable
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact the webmaster/ tech support immediately to have them rectify this.
error id: “bad_httpd_conf”

The domain name is The address that I am attempting to redirect to is

I have succesfully done this previously for a similar web domain at, and have tried duplicating the settings from the working account, but am still not able to get the new domain to work. I am not sure what else to change at this point, and would appreciate any ideas and insights that anyone might be able to offer.
