Squiralmail - webmail alias not working
I installed ISPConfig 3.0.3 on ubuntu 10.04.
Everything is working fine except the http://www.domain.com/webmail link.
It shows a 404 not found record.
In /var/www i can see a symlink like this
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 Oct 23 03:56 webmail -> /usr/share/squirrelmail/
What could be the error?
This link will only work when the IP address that is used to access the server is not assigned to a website in ispconfig. There are several solutions:
1) dont assign the ip to a website and use * instead.
2) create a dedicated website for webmail e.g. webmail.yourdomain.com and install a webmail client of your choice into that website.
Removing the IP address association from the website did the trick ...
Now I am facing a strange problem ...
My newly added websites are showing default web server page.
Any idea? My webserver stopped working suddenly and I restarted the apache using /etc/init.d/apache start
Please help ...
Then your server requires it that you assign the IP addresses to the sites. In that case, you have to use the second method for webmail that I mentioned in my post.
Thank you for your response..
I did the complete reinstall of ubuntu and ISPConfig 3 setup.
I added one domain, not assigned any IP address.
The domain name is customsurveyor.com
In web domain setup, my values are per attachment.
My DNS zone has entry for www record
What value should I have for Auto sub domain .. I tried the *, www combinations but it does not work :(
Select the IP address in the IP address field and select www for auto subdomain. By the way, why did you reinstall?
I am using linode VPS, so reinstall was just few minutes.
If I assign the IP, then the webmail is not working for sure.
http://www.customsurveyor.com/ is going to default page
http://customsurveyor.com/ is going to ISPConfig page
http://customsurveyor.com/webmail not working
http://www.customsurveyor.com/webmail is working ..
If I assign www subdomain in domain setup, then website works with www, but webmail does not working...
umm .. this is getting confusing :(
Please contact me at richard a-t florix.net
Maby this will help.
I remember in cAnal when you added a new domain to your account, if setup properly it would automatically add a webmail.your.tld subdomain and would also allow your.tld/webmail to access webmail options.
I too have been looking for the best way to do this and I am by no means an expert (like Till or Falko :eek:, One Day!:rolleyes:) but I have found a solution that worked for me.
The following will allow all domains, subdomains, and alias domains to access webmail using (as an example) http://your.tld/webmail
NOTE: I picked this up from some other post after hours of searching and did not bookmark the page but kept notes.
Step one: Make your symlink for webmail (taken from Step 17 of that link)
I use nano but you can use what you want:
Also if you have installed using the recommended install docs on the ISPConfig website you could choose to install SquirrelMail differently by changing the folder in Step one.
By doing so you can ultimately setup your /webmail to provide more than one webmail client.
If you checked out the example you can see I offer more than just SquirrelMail but Horde and Roundcube.
Here is the concept:
If you follow Falko's "Perfect Setup guide" you will get to Step one (depending on your install) from the above post.
With some simple code you can create an index page that can point to your different webmail clients.
EX. (If your symlinks are setup correctly)
With that I hope this helped. If not please let me know if I can update this post.
Falko, Till.... I just what to say thanks for the time, effort, and charity.
Did you enable PHP for the aditlfai.com web site?
