You don't create the subdomains in the settings, you create them in cPanel (or whatever your host uses).

First step
Create subdomains in cPanel and point them to /public_html/
e.g. m.mysite.com

Second step
Go to Mobile Joomla component. Go to advanced settings. In the area "Subdomains" input the domain you want mobile users to see when they browse the site on their device.
e.g. m.mysite.com

Done.

Potential issues
- htaccess rules may stop or intercept this re-direct. Check your htaccess file to ensure it's not re-directing your subdomain traffic. When I set this up I also had a rule to re-direct all non-www traffic so the mobile subdomain didn't work. I used the following code in .htaccess:
##### Redirect non-www to www -- BEGIN
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^m\.mysite\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ www.%{HTTP_HOST}/$1 [R=301,L]
##### Redirect non-www to www -- END

Hope this helps you.

Hey Terence, the image you attached is not cpanel, that's Joomla admin. If you Google cpanel you'll see what it is.

If you're just creating this on your localhost there really isn't a need to go through the complex process of setting it up on a local subdomain. Once you launch your site then revisit this post if you wish to set up mobile joomla on a subdomain.

Terence, you don't need cpanel, it's not for local development.

There's loads of information about initial set ups, try searching this site, this forum, Google, etc.
