subdomain not properly working
Hi everyone!
a few months ago e installed and configures ispconfig, i like it!
and keep it to my personal host.
so.. what now?

i wonder cuz i access a domain that i own, via a blackberry..
blackberry add the 'www'. so... when i try to access it .. don't show the domain content but the content of /var/www/index.html

this on every domain that i host.... this is not normal..

for one domain specific domain i choose the '*.' as in the manual shows to get all subdomains pointing to

but never work.. thanks to blackberry i tried '' '' non work.

al leads me to '/var/www' directory content.

please help!!!

Did you add sites in ISPConfig.
If you dont add a domain to SITES it will default to the root of your webserver (eg: /var/www).

i can access the domain http://domain.tld
it leads me to the 'site' root folder.

but if i try
leads me to the whole apache documents root folder '/var/www/'

i just notice it thanks to an blackberry mobile.

its kinda weird.. i can't figure out whats going on..

I add zones with the Add Zone wizzard, and don't touch any records, i just do what the ispconfig 3 manual says.

thanks for the reply!

for www subdomain thats done with Auto-Subdomain when you setup a website, or you can have *. for redirect all subdomains to the site root folder.

if you want to setup a subdomain called ICE for domain MYSITE.COM (, you would go to SITES/SUBDOMAIN OF WEBSITE and then put:

Host -> ice
Domain ->
Redirect Type -> L
Redirect Path -> /ice/

Active -> check

Redirection Types - what the URL in web browser will be:
L = =>
R = =>

Then add the dns CNAME or A record for ICE, restart apache and it should work.
