    "But they don't provided this for me."

    If you can edit the dns zone for your domain where your subdomain is configured then you can add:

    *.subdomain TTL in cname domain.

    as well as the httpd.conf serveralias wildcard for the subdomain. It's pretty easy really.

    But if you can't edit those and your ISP won't add wildcards to both the dns zone and the Apache serveralias then you can't use subdomains. You can install a subdirectory Mu though, or get a better ISP :)

    Part of the issue may also be that you state you installed the software as It's needs to be installed as without the 'www' bit. Subdomains come off of what you use as a URL. if you include the 'www' bit, you're going to wind up with

    I'm guessing you're on shared hosting, so you'll have to ask your host to make the edit for it.

    Tell them you need a wildcard server alias (*.domain.tld, with your domain of course) enabled for your virtual host.

    They may or may not make the change. If not, you can't run a subdomain install and would have to use subdirectories instead.
