How do subdomains work in relationship to multiple sites? This seems to be danced around in the documentation that is out there.
more specifically. If I have...
primarydomain.com as my site in the site folder.... and point the domain dev.primarydomain.com at the drupal install without a dev.primarydomain.com folder will dev load the primarydomain.com or the default site?
The key behind this is I am trying to setup a 3 tier environment for drupal (dev, test, prod) and want to have as few transformation processes to move things up the tier. So I am hoping I can simply put dev infront of the domain and everything will work.
Also if it does work can I do the same thing on a sub-subdomain? dev.blog.primarydomain.com?
Thank you for your help I am relatively new to drupal and working on putting an existing site into a dev environment to learn more safely.
