    Hi guys,

    I would like to access the IsPConfig admin panel through this kind of URL https://mydomain.tld/admin rather than https://mydomain.tld:8080.

    And that, regardless the virtual host... just like phpmyadmin is working... You can access it from any website URL with a "/phpmyadmin"

    Is it possible?

    I do realize, writing those lines that it is more an apache related issues than an ISPConfig one, but maybe someone here already tried that...

    Thanks for your help!

    /admin is not a good name!
    I have seen a lot CMS systems use that name.

    That's not a good idea for several reasons:

    1) The control panel has to run under the user "ispconfig" for security reasons instead of www-data, the SuexecUserGroup setting in apache works per virtual host and not per directory, so you can't use a <Directory /nnnnn/nnnn/> Setting for it.
    2) The Control panel should be reachable over SSL only, so even if you find a solution for 1) then each site must have SSL enabled on your server.

    Thanks a lot, that's a very constructive answer!
    I will not do that so.
