I've successfully installed and set up the Subsites module, and I have added a subdomain via my hosting (using cPanel X). The document root is /public_html/subdomain and I have left it "not directed".
However, trying to access www.subdomain.domain.com brings up a 500 Internal Error. If I change the subdomain direction to www.domain.com/subdomain (which is the path to the subdomain), Silverstripe doesn't recognise it as being a subdomain and thinks it's trying to open a page.
Am I correct in thinking that I need to set up the subdomain with the hosting cPanel, or does this need to be done a different way?
