[EP-tech] EPrints and website subdomains

Hi All,

Short version: I'm attempting to install EPrints on my (personal) server under a subdomain. e.g. website name with random static pages is example.com. I want my EPrints installation to be accessed via eprints.example.com. I'm struggling because I don't know a lot about Apache and subdomains.

Long version:
I'm attempting to install Eprints 3.4 on my personal server (I only use it for practice/experimenting).

Initially the server ran a very simple website. Mostly static pages with some php and mysql etc. I have security certificates and there were no subdomains. I've done what I THINK I need to do to create a subdomain with my server provider (ionos) and I've managed to install EPrints and now I think it's about getting the Apache part right.

If I disable the eprints apache conf files I access my website via example.com and eprints.example.com and both of these take me to my usual previously existing website. If I enable the eprints apache conf files I get taken to EPrints via both example.com and eprints.example.com and I can no longer access my pre-existing website.

This isn't urgent as I'm only playing around in preparation for an upgrade soon. I was just hoping somebody had some experience with EPrints and subdomains. I thought I had all I needed in the way of an example as my repository is livrepository.liverpool.ac.uk. I assumed this was a subdomain and so modelled my apache config on the ones on my work server.

Any sort of guidance or useful resources would be a huge help.
