Hello everyone,
I want to check if I created my subdomain the good way.
I have a WordPress site on the domain domain.org . I have to test some new themes so I decided to create a dev subdomain, here are the steps I followed:

1. I went to subdomains section and created the dev subdomain under domain.org domain. 1603208618206.png

2. I pasted all the files of my original site on the new domain's folder:

3. Then I created the DNS A record on the zone editor for the new subdomain:

24 hours have passed and still cannot access to my subdomain:

do I have to wait more time or it's something wrong on my configuration?

Thanks in advance!

You need to add this domain in CloudFlare where your DNS for the domain is managed.
Thanks for your answer!,
we already added the subdomain in CloudFlare but we are not sure which ip address to use for that subdomain.
We used the same ip address of the cpanel account but now when I put the subdomain (dev.rmhc-ctx.org) on the browser it redirects to the main domain (rmhc-ctx.org).
any idea what's wrong there ?
