Direct JIRA to subdomain on CentOS 6 server

I've successfully installed JIRA on my server and I can get it to load nicely at http://myserver.com:8080/.  I went through the steps at https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/proxying-atlassian-server-applications-with-apache-http-server-mod_proxy_http-806032611.html but it still won't load at http://jira.myserver.com(I get ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED).

Additionally, I am on Apache version 2.4.25 and here is my vhost.conf file contents (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is my actual IP address):

<VirtualHost XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:80>
  ServerName jira.myserver.com
  ProxyRequests Off
  ProxyVia Off
 
  RemoteIPHeader X-Forwarded-For
 
  <Proxy XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX>
    Require all granted
  </Proxy>
 
  ProxyPass / http://myserver.com:8080/
  ProxyPassReverse / http://myserver.com:8080/
</VirtualHost>

And here is my server.xml Connect code:

<Connector port="8080"
                   maxThreads="150"
                   minSpareThreads="25"
                   minSpareThreads="25"
                   connectionTimeout="20000"
                   enableLookups="false"
                   maxHttpHeaderSize="8192"
                   protocol="HTTP/1.1"
                   useBodyEncodingForURI="true"
                   redirectPort="8443"
                   acceptCount="100"
                   disableUploadTimeout="true"
                   proxyName="jira.myserver.com"
                   proxyPort="80"
                   scheme="http"
                   />

I'm getting an "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" error on my server if I go to jira.myserver.com.  If I go to myserver.com:8080, I can't go past my Agile boards in each of my project pages and my gadgets shows a DNS error message.

On top of that, if I go to server.myserver.com, I can load my JIRA installation.  server.myserver.com and jira.myserver.com are the on the same line in my /etc/hosts/ file and server.myserver.com is defined in my httpd.conf file, which says I shouldn't edit it, for all unbound IP addresses.

I've tried tweaking it so much, what else can I try to fix this?

I had to add a DNS entry for jira.myserver.com.  I tried to do it manually in /etc/hosts and /named et cetera but it was easiest to just create the subdomain from my cPanel and then restart apache servers to grab that new subdomain and proxy it correctly.

I fixed this yesterday by replacing the "*" with my server's actual IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) but today it isn't working.  What would have changed?

Does nslookup resolve myserver.com and jira.myserver.com to the right IP address?

It doesn't and I've added jira.myserver.com entries to /named/myserver.com.db.  Am I missing another step to adding a domain to the DNS listing?

Ok, you need to have the server (and other machines) be able to find the JIRA server via the urls you are using.  I can't really help you with your network setup.
