Subdomain Setup

Hi all,

I’m implementing a new site that will need domains like this: newyork.foo.com, chicago.foo.com. Each of these domains will be a self contained community. Locations is a table in the db. The user will be able to login to a specific Location and then add content to it. When a user visits newyork.foo.com for example, I need to scope all the content to that specific location. new locations do not need to be created dynamically. Can anyone recommend a good way of setting up this type of environment? I’m using Apache 2.2

thanks!

Those are helpful links, thanks. But where my problem differs is that the subdomain is not user specifc, rather it is group specific. An Account belongs to a city and a city name is what is used for the subdomain.

It's the same principal. Just get the subdomain use it to find the
appropriate city, group, cow, spaceship, whatever...
