I have just signed up to Dreamhost and I am quite surprised that there is no easy way to set up Virtual Hosts in the httpd.conf.
I have a website hosted on another hoster, I don’t want to move it. The DNS is elsewhere as well and I don’t want to move it. In my Dream Host account I want to set up a site like dev.mydomain.com.
I have already added a record to the DNS and mapped it to the Dream Host IP. I have managed to add a subdomain to Dream Host but only after adding and then deleting the domain itself. All I get now when I hit dev.mydomain.com is:
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”
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.
