Good news is it worked... at least long enough for me to install Drupal and check all of the database information. Bad news, after I came home for the day to work on the site I get "bad_httpd_conf".
I changed the nameservers and it worked for a time, and now the name servers on GoDaddy are still ns1.dreamhost.com (ns2, ns3, respectively). The main domain is currently working, but the subdomain is on the fritz again. Suggestion?
