    Hi all there:

    I have ispconfig 3 running over a debian lenny.

    All works fine but since a couple of days alias doesn't work...

    I have this line in my /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:
    Alias /webmail /usr/share/squirrelmail

    So, all my clients could connect to squirrelmail by writing

    But as I was saying, since a couple of day, this doesn't work and they only get a 404 page...

    Can you say me where is the problem?? or better, where a can looking for to solve my problem??

    Thanks a lot!!

    This most likely happened because you added a website were you selected the IP address and not * in ISPConfig. So this new website is now responsible for all requests that are not assigned to another vhost which includes the requests from the alias directives.

    Yes, I have thought about it but I haven't been able to test it... (And I have no time)

    I solved my problem by creating a symlink as you said in another thread...

    Thanks a lot, till, you are the best!!
