I am running a Joomla site and managing the dev environment using cPanel. I have set up a subdomain which I will be building the new version of the website in like so — dev.somewebsite.com (with the directory being called _dev)
I have been told that the current .htaccess may cause issues with the subdomain and that I would most likely need to edit it.
I currently am unable to visit dev.somewebsite.com in my browser as Chrome gives the following message:
server DNS address could not be found
I've been into Admin Tools and looked under Exceptions, then Allow direct access, including .php files, to these directories and added
_dev underneath what was there already
Alas, that didn't work.
Is there another way I can get this working?
