Testing subdomains under mirrored dreamhosters subdomains


#1

I’m trying to move a site over to DH and need to do some testing before DNS switch.

I currently have mywebsite.com and a subdomain admin.mywebsite.com

I have things setup so that a mywebsite.dreamhosters.com is mirroring mywebsite.com, however I’m unsure how to access the admin subdomain.

I tried admin.mywebsite.dreamhosters.com, thinking it’d work similarly to the way mysql.mywebsite.dreamhosters.com works, but i get a 204 No Content…

Any ideas?

You’d have to create a separate subdomain (admin-mywebsite.dreamhosters.com, perhaps?) to mirror admin.mywebsite.com.

ah, ok - that makes sense.

Thanks Andrew!
