Hi,

I have a subdomain that uses an existing Application with the URL Path set to the name of the subdomain. So if I have the subdomain sub.xxx.com, I have a folder called "sub" in the "xxx" Application folder. I already tried to make a symbolic php5.3 link but couldn't get it to work.

But when I go to the subdomain it says Not Found: There is no application mounted at the root of this domain.

What is the easiest way to add a subdomain within an existing Application?

Thanks in advance!

If you are mounting your app at a sub-domain, you still need to mount your app at URL path /.

If you mount it at a URL path it will be available at sub.xxx.com/sub not at sub.xxx.com(where you will get "There is no application mounted at the root of this domain")

Can you try mounting your symlink app at the URL path /?

What should the absolute path of the symbolic application look like? I always get a 403 Forbidden when I try things like /webapps/xxx/sub

It should be: /home/yourusername/webapps/xxx/sub

If you still get the "403 forbidden" after this, then it maybe a permissions problem.

You can file a support ticket with us in that case.
