Doc reference for sub-server?

SYSTEM INFORMATION
OS type and version Linux 6.1.0-21-amd64 on x86_64
Virtualmin version 7.10.0

Do require sub-domains in some cases. Understand Virtualmin uses ‘sub-servers’.

Unable to locate information for sub-servers in the docs. Is there a documentation entry for it? If not, any URL which will cover the subject?

Don’t confuse sub servers with subdomains. Yes, Virtualmin does offer sub servers but you don’t need to use sub servers to host your subdomains.

You should use Virtualmin’s top level virtual server for your domain and then create another top level virtual server for your subdomain. That’s what you should do unless you have a very specific reason to use sub servers.

If you wish to use a sub server for your subdomain then you will create a top level virtual server for your domain (as usual) and then create a sub server under it for the subdomain.

Brilliant! Thank you for the crystal clear explanation and, of course, the very swift response. Very much appreciated.

Now that I understand the terminology Virtualmin uses in this area, it’s grand. With a background of CLI and a couple other browser based server panels the terminology had me a bit mystified.

Again, many thanks.
