    i was messing around with subdomains and created http://secure.mydomain.com and then deleted it. However, it doesnt really appear to be deleted... whenever I go to it, it still comes up. ive tried restarting apache and DNS and still comes up. how can I make it so it doesnt come up?

    Looks like you have a wildcard entry in DNS for that domain. Look for a *.domain.com entry in the DNS settings. If this is present, then any non-existant subdomain name will still be redirected to the domain's home page.

    Such as browsing to zyx.domain.com or asdf.domain.com will still go to the main homepage.

    Nope - I removed the wildcard. If I go to any other subdomain it doesn't work. However, if I go to secure.mydomain.com it works...

    Grr

    1) Clear your browser's cache.

    2) Check the contents of:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/conf/vhost.conf
    /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/conf/httpd.include

    for any signs of the subdomain name.

    Tried clearing the cache, even tried different computer and browser - didn't work

    vhosts.conf doesn't exist and the httpd.include is clear of the subdomain.

    I also tried creating the subdomain as a domain itself and deleted that, what should i check for remains of that?

    Check the /var/named/run-root/var/domain.com file, this is the DNS zone file, do not manually edit/change, just look at it and see if it still contains either a wildcard '*' entry or the subdomain name.

    Also check the contents (again do not edit/change) of /var/named/run-root/etc/named.conf

    Let me know what you find.

    I just rebooted the whole box and it works now.

    My box has a ghost - seriously...

    It sounds like your apache isn't really restarting when it tells you it is. You might want to try restarting it and check /var/log/httpd/error_log to see if it actually does restart.
