    I apologize if this has already been answered, I did try to search the forums already.

    Basically, I added a subdomain as its own account in WHM, and I set up an A record for it like I always do at freedns.afraid.org

    The ftp seems to work, and even sub.mydomain.com:2082 brings me to its cPanel. But for some reason I'm still getting the yellow and blue "Default Web Site" page even after trying the following:

    - flushing local dns
    - waiting for dns to update for 24 hours
    - terminating and re-creating the account

    I just terminated the account again and I noticed I'm still getting the "Default Web Site" page. I'm thinking that there might be a problem with the apache config file, but before I go jumping into that I wanted to get people's opinions.

    Thanks in advance!

    You've terminated the account twice thinking somethings broken when nothing was, probably. You've already jumped.

    Create the account normally, setup the DNS whatever way you're doing it, wait, and then check it from somewhere else like this site for example: Down For Everyone Or Just Me -> Check if your website is down or up?
