Default Small webhost with ispconfig 3

so i recently found i have a number of friends and family that are for some reason paying for web hosting at WeSellHosting.com/YourPage style hosts, so i figured i can save them a lill money and host for them.

i have used ubuntu for years but never to host multiple pages so i followed the perfect server guide for ubuntu 9.10 with ISPConfig 3 and am up and running... however after installing it i am having a hard time figuring out how to configure it.

i would simply like to have everyones websites as MyDomain.com/YourSite or YourSite.MyDomain.com but i cant figure this out.

i have setup a test user and test website however i cant seem to find the site through a web browser or figure out how to set subdomains to link to said site

any help would be great!!!

thanks!
-Jeff

You should use YourSite.MyDomain.com and not MyDomain.com/YourSite for such a setup.

Just as a sidenote, domains names are always lowercase, if you use uppercae characters, it might cause your sites to not work as paths in linux are case sensitive!

1) Create DNS A-Records for every subdomain e.g. yoursite.yourdomain.com
2) create a website yoursite.yourdomain.com

repeat setps 1 and 2 for each website. If you run your server behind a router, make sure that you use internal ip addresses in the website settings and the external ip address in the dns settings. You should select the IP address and not * in the website settings. If the ip is not listed, add it in the server settings.

Till, did you mean to create an A record for yoursite.yourdomain.com in the yourdomain.com zone or to create first a yoursite.yourdomain.com zone and then add an A record for yoursite.yourdomain.com in the newly created yoursite.yourdomain.com zone?

Thanks

Jude.

All dns records have to created in the zone of the domain, do not create new zones.

Till,

If I understood correctly what you just said, I would simply add an A record for yoursite.yourdomain.com in the yourdomain.com zone. Am I correct?

Thanks
