    in ispconfig 3 control panel, go to Sites -> Subdomain for website -> Add new subdomain, then add a subdomain. should there be a folder under the Website basedir, e.g /var/www/ (for the domain,, there is a folder under Website basedir, e.g. /var/www/

    Just create a new website for the subdomain by clicking on new website, entering in the domain field and click on save. By the way, thats described in the manual too.

    thanks till,

    after create a new website for the subdomain, does it need to create DNS records for this subdomain in control panel and in the registrar?

    in the ispconfig 3 manual, when add a new website, for the Domain field, it says "Domain: This is the main domain of your web site, e.g. (without subdomain like www).". does it mean without using sub etc. in front of as subdomain?

    the subdomain i want to create are, and for different stages during the Drupal CMS SDLC. these subdomains don't point to the same Drupal codebase. can the ispconfig 3 control panel helps to achieve this?

    by the way, why not use the "Subdomain for website" page to create subdomain? what is it used for?
