website subdomain wildcard support

With a simple modification we can have a wildcard in our website subdomain.

You want this, wildcard subdomain: * redirects to

Go to: Sites -> Websites -> Subdomain for website -> Add new subdomain
Host: *
Redirect Type: No redirect

Then ISPConfig will generate "" with:
ServerAlias *

Test it and use at your own risk.

I wait that this little patch could be included in next release. Only it allows * in regex domain verification. I use it in my production servers (Debian 5).

# wget ...
# cd /usr/local/ispconfig
# patch -p0 < ispconfig3_website-subdomain-wildcard.patch

I saw a post with a different solution.

either I misunderstand your request or this already exists:
when you add/edit a domain there is a feature "auto-subdomain"

Mike, you are right. I completely miss the "*." option in "auto sub-domain".

It is not necessary to patch it. I selected now that option.

And the ISPConfig generate "" with:
ServerAlias *

Wow! ISPConfig3 don't forget nothing about Apache config. :-D
