I’ve got several parked domains in my main domain (maindomain.org), and drupal multisite installation works fine for them all. I want to set up another drupal site on a subdomain, sub.maindomain.org, but can’t get it to work. I'm using bluehost, and am hoping someone can provide advise ...
Here’s what I’ve done:
- Created subdomain with document root public_html/sub
- Deleted public_html/sub directory
- Set up a symbolic link for public_html/sub, with target public_html/sites/sub.maindomain.org.
- Copied the drupal default.settings.php to public_html/sites/sub.maindomain.org/settings.php (nothing else in the directory except favicon.ico)
But when I try to open sub.maindomain.org in the browser I get “You don't have permission to access / on this server. … Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”
I know the symbolic link works (I’ve tested it with an index.html in public_html/sites/sub.maindomain.org). And I’ve set the permissions on everything to r/w/e for everybody.
I’m clearly missing something in terms of my setup and my understanding of how drupal multisite works. Can somebody suggest what I might be missing or what needs to be done?
