Simple rezolution to domain.tld/webmail to mail.domain.tld
 
Hello

Many of u ar tryng to change the domain.tld/webmail to webmail.domain.tld.
So I have tryed for adout a week to come up fith something so...here ar the results.

After installing squirrlemail there is a comand line in the how to install ISPConfi 3 tutorial and namely this
Code:

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/ /var/www/webmail
. ok u can make that comand and configure you mail client. After that make a new client in ISPConfig with a new site and the domain webmail.domain.tld.
After this the folder /var/clients/client(nr)/web(nr)/web is creted "where nr is number".
Now....
Code:

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/* /var/clients/client(nr)/web(nr)/web
Now seting permisions
Code:

chmod +x /var/lib/squirrelmail/*
Code:

chown -R web(nr) /var/lib/squirrelmail
So thats about it.


Hope it works for u to.

If this works send some feedback or thanx :D

Some additions
 
Hi All

Firstly thank you Robilaur for this great post, I have been trying for a while to sort this. I hope you do not mind but may I make some additions to your post that may help others that are trying to achieve this and also enable Squirrelmail over HTTPS.

firstly I have posted my system spec so that if any one has similar then they will now that this works:

Debian 5 Lenny
ISPConfig 3 RC2
Squirrelmail
Falkos (Perfect server setup for the above operating system)


I followed Robilaurs instructions but just to clarify some things.

Code:

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/* :/var/clients/client(nr)/web(nr)/web
On a Dabian system you have to include /www in the symlink.

e.g.
Code:

ln -s /usr/share/squirrelmail/* :/var/www/clients/client(nr)/web(nr)/web
Also following Squirellmail's recommendations the command:
Code:

chmod +x /var/lib/squirrelmail/*
Should be:
Code:

chmod 775 /var/lib/squirrelmail/
And you should also change the permissions of the users .pref folder otherwise you will get an error when trying to log in

So change the .pref folder to:
Code:

chmod 664 user@usersdomain.co.uk.pref
Now if you enable a site to have SSL then create an SSL certificate for it.

now create a redirect by selecting redirect type (R) and redirecting to Https://webmail.yourdomain.co.uk. This means that if a user types in Http by accident it will auto direct to Https.

You can now delete the old /webmail folder as it is no longer used.
Code:

rm -r /var/www/webmail
That's it.... just for cleanliness sake only, restart Apache just to be on the safe side
Code:

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
I hope this clarifies a few things and also helps out others in the same boat.

this is due recent change of default webfolder location.
change was made 02-Mar-2009. if one has not updated from SVN after that, Robilaur's original symlink works.

Even better would be a rewrite rule on the webserver level -

Code:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond    %{REQUEST_FILENAME}  -d
RewriteRule    ^(.+[^/])$          $1/  [R]
RewriteRule  ^/webmail/  http://webmail.example.com [R,L]

Stick this in the "optional" section at the bottom of the site page in ispconfig and it will take all requests to a directory with no trailing / (this converts /webmail to /webmail/), and then takes /webmail/, and /webmail/* and redirects them to http://webmail.example.com.
