webmail in clients web folder
how can i make a link to the webmail folder in a clients web directory so that on their domain they can access webmail
if i could ftp to my ubuntu server as root i could probably do it but i logged into my server as a local account and tried to make the link in the clients web directory but access was denied. i logged in as the client but do not have permission to make links to other directorys as that account. so whats the best fix for this?

Something like this:


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

In the Apache Directives field of the site would do it

You can try the Alias directive:

Would that alias be created in: /etc/apache2/mods-available/alias.conf ?

I am running ISPConfig 3. My server at is get redirected to the /src/login.php page. But none of my websites work that way.


Any direction would be appreciated!
