Default Observations and testing:

The configuration of mydomain.com, from ispconfig-3 shows all this:
HarddiskQuota:-1, CGI+, SSI+, SuEXEC+, OwnErrorDocs+, AutoSubDomain:*. , SSL+, PHP:Fast-CGI , Active+ .

The core web domain has a Redirect configured, thus: Redirect Type: L, Redirect Path: /subdomain/

Immediately after running: chmod 755 /var/www/mydomain.com/web , I am able to reach the default ispconfig 'welcome' page, as well as the correctly configured subdomain, BUT: If I make any change to core web domain's Redirect tab, and hit save, then I start getting the 403 errors to all pages.

I made this change to the web redirect: http://subdomain.mydomain.com ,(and DNS is properly configured for this subdomain). After modifying the web redirect, looking at the permissions of ~/web, I find them to be 710 (drwx--x---). So, again, I run chmod 755 web, and I'm back to my previous status, where i can reach the default 'welcome', and the subdomain I mentioned.

The web redirect did not seem to work, and I'm unfamiliar with where in the file structure it's making changes. I'm actually trying to get any request for http://mydomain.com and http://www.mydomain.com to instead open http://subdomain.mydomain.com .

So, I modified Auto-Subdomain on the webdomain Website tab to : www.

AGAIN, the permissions at web got changed to 710, with 403 errors. Again, I did chmod 755 web.

Now, there is peace: All (mydomain.com , www.mydomain.com, and subdomain.mydomain.com) are correctly opening my gate-way subdomain page to my webs.

So, why does making changes in the Web Domain Website and Redirect tabs cause a permissions change at /var/www/mydomain.com/web ? Can ( or should) I be able to reconfigure that behavior. Is it a bug, or a feature?

:-)

And where, ideally, in the web file structure, should I be adding back my other subdomains? Will I run into difficulty with Auto-Subdomain set to :.www ? I seem to recall it working when set at .* on the previous server.

I hope these notes make sense, and are helpful. Thanks, as ever, for your fine work with these how-to's, and for the assistance on this problem.
