Subdomain Troubles!





f-spider
Hi, I have looked through the searches and guides and have not found an answer to this yet.

I have bought a .org, it's all set up and my site is working fine. What i want to do is set up a forum subdomain, so I can use my forum at http://forum.mysite.org/index.php or http://forum.mysite.org/login.php etc. How can I do this?

Also, is it possible to set up a subdomain redirection with masking?

Thanks

Go to subdomain management, create the subdomain you want. Move your files to your subdomain folder (unless already there). Change your config of your forum to use the the new subdomain.

Yes.

Any chance you could help me out with that? I've looked around, used the search tool, can't find any way of doing it.

Yeah I've got that far, but it doesn't say anywhere to mask it.

Hello,

You may create sub-domain on the same server using the DirectAdmin control panel and as far I think, it masks address by itself.

Alternatively, you may set a sub domain at your domain registrar control panel. Set the A record to the IP-Address/~your-user-name/Forum-directory. Changes may take upto 3 days to be effective but will properly mask address. More over, you could host forum any where else and provide the URL in A-record.
