Default lots of questions from noob

First of all I would like to thank the developers for what looks to be some great software. I was referred to ispconfig by a co-worker that has been running this from quite sometime. Since he has a slightly different setup as I do, I will start by asking some questions here.

As I am completely new to using ispconfig and cp's in general, I hope my questions are not too confusing. I am a current (possibly former) user of software like xampp, wamp, etc.)

Now onto my current situation:

I have fresh installed Fedora 10 and ispconfig 2.2.29 via the perfect server setup tutorial. With a little tweaking of profptd to get the ftp server working, everything seems to be working correctly. I am also using zoneedit as I am on a single dynamic ip though my isp without the ability to go static/multiple ip's. I also have the domains registered through godaddy which is using the zoneedit dns servers, I do however have zoneedit pointing to my ispconfig dns for an added backup.

I am using this for several different domains, all controlled by myself for now. Each site needs to have a live site, and two development sites (preferably sub domains) ie. www.domain.com, dev1.domain.com and dev2.domain.com. The live site works correctly but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the subdomains working right. I guess they would be separate sites and not just a webforward co-domain right?

Each live/dev site does not need separate mail servers, the one for the live site would be just fine. I did notice if i make a new site for each of the dev sites, they need a separate ftp login? If possible, I would like each ftp account to be able to access each of the dev sites through the same login not 3 separate user accounts.

I guess these questions will get me started for now, I am sure I will have several others when the time comes. Thanks to anyone who attempts to help me out.

That's not possible with ISPConfig 2.

thanks for the confirmations, I currently got the subdomains working through the web redirect for now. I think someone on here has a workaround for the redirect using rewrite rules or something, but I am not sure how they are going to affect my joomla install as of yet. Not sure how I got it working though, I think it was just that the dns cache, did not update fast enough for me

Is there a way to rebuild the cache without having to wait for it? ie. If I add another co-domain then rebuild the cache, its available to make sure i have it working correctly.

The updates of dns caches can not be speeded up as the dns caches are run by many large providers all over the internet. You ccan try to set a shorter TTL for your domain but not all providers will obey that.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Does this mean the co-domains listed in ispconfig are also controlled by zoneedit?

It depends. You can check the authoritative name servers by running
Code:
dig ns yourdomain.com
