Drupal 6, default installation, default .htaccess, default http.conf for Apache.
sites/ directory looked like this:
all default subdomain1.maindomain.com
default site and
subdomain1 working well.
Added a new directory,
subdomain2.maindomain.com. It has the same ownership and permissions as
subdomain1.maindomain.com. It contains
default.settings.php, the out-of-the-box one, and
settings.php, which is a copy of
default.settings.php. The permissions and ownership of the two files are correct.
The 'sites' directory now looks like this:
all default subdomain1.maindomain.com subdomain2.maindomain.com
subdomain2.maindomain.com returns an error. Visiting
subdomain2.maindomain.com/install.php returns an error. I can download an example file from
maindomain.com/sites/subdomain2.maindomain.com/files/example.txt when it is located at
Basically, I've followed all the steps in the docs, and I'm unable to create another 'subsite' accessible from a new subdomain. What am I doing wrong? What else should I be doing?
