Can't find docroot for subdomain

Hi all (and hi Joe!)

I added a subdomain for a site, say, using virtualmin and clicking on the "Add sub-domain" option. All looked to be well, and the dir /home/myuser/domains/ was created. Accessing from a browser resolved immediate, so I began uploading to /home/myuser/domains/

When I access a known directory, such as, it says file not found, and despite the fact that there is a valid index file in the docroot, the default page never goes away. It's as if apache is looking somewhere other than /home/myuser/domains/ for the files, as it is behaving as though that public_html dir is empty.

Any ideas?

Ran into this problem again - did anyone have an answer?

Hey Alison,

Can you post the VirtualHost section of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf for this subdomain? I'm not seeing an immediate cause for this behavior, and it works fine when I create a subdomain on the demo server and drop an index.html or index.php file in place in a subdirectory within that domain.

Seems like I recall there was some issue with subdomains a while back...are you using the latest version? I believe there was an issue with the default server template for subdomains not containing a DocumentRoot. Which would give the behaviour you're seeing.
