I own one domain at the moment and it is the domain I used for the ISPConfig 3 setup. So I created a client for it (me) and then attached this record to my e-mail, sites, and DNS for said domain.
I installed Joomla into a directory in the www root of the site mydomain.com. So I access Joomla via mydomain.com/Joomla/. Which, if my read of the install instructions is correct, is the proper manner to install this.
My question is how to redirect mydomain.com/Joomla to www.mydomain.com
so that it appears as www.mydomain.com
and not mydomain.com/Joomla? I have already played around with the redirect to get mysubdomain.mydomain.com to redirect to mydomain.com/Joomla, but this doesn't help much toward my goal. Do I need to install the Joomla files directly into the root folder?
[Incidentally I read what i could find on Joomla and ISPConfig and in the end I didn't edit any files. I only created the site with suEXEC/FastCGI/Own error documents as well as the ftp user and database. Aside from some weird errors when I enabled the FTP layer during install everything seems to work fine. Was there something critical that I missed that should have been enabled and will haunt me later?]
thanks to everyone for their help so far. I realize my questions are probably repetitive. I am learning Linux/ISPConfig/Joomla on my own and have no resources other than some books and the net. Despite spending alot of time searching the forums hear and elsewhere for answers I am never sure what is necessarily relevant to my situation due to lack of familiarity with so much.
PS I had some false starts with the Joomla install and had to delete the site and database several times and notices the user number was incrementing upward. Do I have manually delete those user files via the terminal or is this just the default behavior for numbering the users and sites?
