Default Squiralmail - webmail alias not working

Hi,

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?

Please suggest.

Richard

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.

Hi Till,

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.

Default Florix.net

Hi,

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?
