Trying to create a subdomain for a site as forum.sitename.com/www.forum.sitename.com. I've tried following these instructions:
As follows... Create a new static/cgi/php app
Create a new MySQL database
[done, but I'm not sure how this relates to the other steps.]
Upload your application's files into ~/webapps/name_of_your_new_app
Add your new app to a site
Go to your new site and follow the application installation steps from there
[cannot find forum.newsite.com.]
I'm new, so forgive any stupidity, but... do I need to associate the MySQL database with the new site somehow? Do things have to have the same name? Does the MySQL database need to attach to the subdomain somehow?
Thanks for any help. Apologies if I'm being a dunce.

Aaaahhhh, I think that's where my newbieness comes in -- I'd pointed the top-level domain to Webfaction via the registrar, but do I have to point individual subdomains as well? I'll do that.
EDIT: Yeah, that did it! Thanks for bearing with me.
