I have a regular domain like example.com connected to a wordpress app (wp-app) via a website (wp-site) at /

Also a www which is implemented as a redirect per examples.

All working well.

I add a subdomain like mine.example.com by adding it as a domain. Then creating a new wordpress app. (mine-app) Then adding a website (mine-site) with the subdomain pointing to (mine-app) at /. (surely the app base directory is the root ?)

But now the domain has gone and is no longer reachable. If I remove the website record for the subdomain then the main domain comes back.

How do I get a wordpress on my main domain and a wordpress on my subdomain ?

What you are describing should work. It is hard to say why it is failing without seeing the actual configuration and testing it in real time. You can try checking SSH and other services to verify if each domain is actually connecting to the server. You can also submit a support ticket and we can take a look if you have something for us to troubleshoot such as a failing example.

Solved I just waited 12 hours for the various caches to settle and it all started working as planned.
