Hi, iam playing around with subsites for a while now, but i am still not able to get it working. Here is what i have done so far:

1. set up an subdomain directory: .sub-carsten (thats how it works at - very good hosting for silverstripe. They even offer an silverstripe installer)

2. set an DNS entry in the domain configuration:

3. put a .htacces into the new directory. last version:

AddType application/x-httpd-php5 .php

<Files *.ss>
	Order deny,allow
	Deny from all
	Allow from

<Files web.config>
	Order deny,allow
	Deny from all

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#	RewriteBase /
#	RewriteRule ^subdomaindirectory$ subdomaindirectory/ [R,L]
#	RewriteRule ^subdomaindirectory/(.*)$ subdomaindirectory/$1 [L] 

# Subsite rewrite
 	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$
 	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
 	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
 	RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$
	# RewriteRule ^(.*)$ ../ [NC]
 	RewriteRule .* ./sapphire/main.php?url=%{REQUEST_URI}&SubsiteID=3&%{QUERY_STRING} [L] 



4. set up subsites within the admin:
4.1 Subsite Name = Carsten
4.2 Primary domain:
4.3 Active Subsite: 1
4.4 Language: german
4.5 default site: no
4.6 Enable public access: true
4.7 Theme: trip

If i run (ID is correct) i get: The requested page could not be found.

Questions: How can i use a subdomain with subsites and what do i have to configure to make it work?

Greetings, Carsten.
