I'm Trying to setup a subdomain with a copy of the main site so I can test things out.

  1. I created the subdomain and the necessary zone records
  2. Copied the site to the subdomain directory (which is at the same level as the maindomain)
  3. Made necessary changes to core_config_data and local.xml

When I navigate subdomain it redirects to main domain. I tried disabling the .htaccess file but it still redirects.

I think it might have something to do with our https settings or something.

Could someone help?

This is the .htaccess file:

  1. Make sure that folders and files permissions are right.
  2. Make sure magento can access var folder.
  3. Delete manually all cache and session files.
  4. Make the necessary changes to your .conf file in order your subdomain to point to right folder
  • 1. I copied the files directly from the old site so I'm assuming that the permissions get carried over, right? 2. How do I check if Magento can access var? 3. I deleted the cache and session files 4. I had already made changes to local.xml I'm assuming you mean for me to make these changes in the subdomain directory, right? Now I'm getting a DNS error. – user16128 Aug 8 '15 at 17:48

Did you check secure and unsecure url in database

  • Yes, I changed both records. – user16128 Aug 9 '15 at 12:45
  • rename your local.xml and install again – Magento 2 Aug 10 '15 at 5:39
  • I renamed it, but when I tried to reinstall it just redirected to the main domain. – user16128 Aug 10 '15 at 21:09
  • search your db it have any live url so that only it redirect to live – Magento 2 Aug 11 '15 at 4:27
  • Good idea but no dice, I searched the database but the only instances of the main domain were from email addresses. Any other ideas? – user16128 Aug 11 '15 at 13:43

In case if any one still looking at this question,

I had same problem. And when i changed,

  1. web/unsecure/base_url to http://www.sub.domain.com/
  2. web/secure/base_url to https://www.sub.domain.com/

Everything works fine. previously it was https on both secure and unsecure options.
