Default subdomain redirects


i want to point the following subdomains to the appropriate apps:

mail.mydomain.com -> /usr/share/squirrelmail
cloud.mydomain.com -> /usr/share/owncloud

however when i do this it cant find them. i have tried:


Host mail
Domain mydomain.com
Redirect Type noflag
Redirect Path /../../../../../usr/share/squirrelmail/
Active check

That worked for a while, and then it didnt.

i have also tried:
Redirect Path /usr/share/squirrelmail/
Redirect Path /webmail/
Redirect Path http://mydomain.com/webmail/
Redirect Path https://mydomain.com/webmail/

and nothing seems to work..

if i do a nslookup mail.mydomain.com from within the server or on the network, it brings back the correct ip address.
i have also tried setting the DNS with an A record and CNAME for the mail / cloud subs:

A mydomain.com.
A mail


A mydomain.com.
CNAME mail

has anyone got this working ?

thanks for any help..

Subdomain redirects are not made to load content from a directory outside the web dir.

1) Delete the subdomain in ispconfig.
2) Edit the file in /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf and add there:

DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail
ServerName webmail.mydomain.com

3) Do the same for owncloud.

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