Hi all, very new to Silverstripe stepping into the real world of CMS's rather than hacking my way through Wordpress!

I have setup Multisites fine and the drop-down option is showing, so far so good. but I cant access the subsite page, i just get a failed to open page error. Im not sure exactly how to set the subdomain up.

I want the site to be accessible through: http://subsite.localhost/mysite/

I have added the name of the subsite but have no idea what to type in the box below (see screenshot attached)

Any help would be massively appreciated.

Have you setup the virtual hosts configuration on your server to point "http://subsite.localhost/mysite/" to the http://localhost/mysite/ folder? If its a subdomain (and on apache at least) you need a ServerAlias for the Virtual host record of mysite.

For localhost you may also have to edit your hosts file to point the subdomains to your localhost like the following localhost
# add entries to hosts file for subsites mobile.localhost

I am trying to do this for the mobile module...
I have setup the subdomain in Plesk, and followed these directions:
changing a few paths as the conf folder was in a slightly different place for me...
I rebooted, and still gives me a server test page.
Am I missing something... this really isn't my strength as I seldom have to do much as var as server config?
