Need help for Setting properly my Subdomain


I want that my users use the url: forum.mywebsite.com for join to my forum. But i created the subdomain and it redirect me to my homepage (mywebsite.com) so forum.mywebsite.com send me to mywebsite.com and not to the folder inside called "forum"

Hope someone teach me how to do it well :3

Its not a shared hosting, i've my own vps for hosting my website and forum.

Rename the folder on the server and update this setting:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL
