Subdomain to Tumblr


#1

I’ve been trying to setup my subdomain for http://damian.nimeck.com/ to point to my tumblr blog. I’ve been able to successfully do this in the past with other domains not hosted by Dreamhost.

However, when I follow the instructions on the wiki, I get to my domain and get the following error when trying to set a A or CNAME record:

“You already have a record for this name. You can’t have a CNAME and any other record on the same name.”

When I try to edit that record that already exists, I cannot because its a “Non-editable DreamHost DNS records for damian.nimeck.com

How/what do I need to do to be able to have damian.nimeck.com point to tumblr, but still keep the remaining sub-domains and regular domain (nimeck.com) on dreamhost?

You already have something hosted on http://damian.nimeck.com/ via dreamhost servers.

You need to delete that first via the Manage Domains page of the panel.

Once that’s done, go to the record for nimeck.com on the manage domains page of the panel. Click the DNS link under nimeck.com and add your custom records for the damian. sub-domain there.
