webroot vs. new site
Hi all,

I have a new question in line.

I initially uploaded the hosting website to the /var/www folder without creating a new site. It worked well but I needed to use subdomain through ISPconfig thus I moved the files to a new site I created in ISPconfig. Now when I browse to the URL it shows me the content of var/www instead of linking to the new site /var/www/domain.tld/web/*

Im unsure what can be the cause of this and how to troubleshoot it.

Did you create the subdomain in ISPConfig?

yes I did, and the subdomain works well.

if I type in subdomain.domain.tld its works fine but the domain.tld links to /var/www instead of the content of /var/www/domain.tld/web

its only for this one site.


Actually now when I checked up on it again this morning I am meet by

403 Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Thanks to the error message I was able to find another post by you mentioning that the permissions could be wrong, indeed they were.

I did a chmod 755 /var/www/domain.tld/web

and everything is working now.
