    Hi all,

    This is the situation:
    I have www.website1.com and www.website2.com
    www.website1.com is installed as a website, so it has a folder on the server and everything works fine.

    I want www.website2.com to redirect into a subfolder of www.website1.com.
    Lets say the subfolder is called test.

    I added a aliasdomain with this information:
    domain: website2.com
    parent website: website1.com
    Redirect type R
    redirect path /test/
    auto subdomain *.
    Active: checked

    But when i visit www.website2.com I just get the root of www.website1.com.
    The addressbar is displaying website2.com.

    I changed the flag, I even tried to redirect to www.differentsite.com but it allways goes to the root of www.website1.com.

    Can anyone please help?

    Use redirect type "noflag". If I remember correctly, the redirect will only work for the domain that you specified and not * wildcards. So your redirect will work for website2.com but not www.website2.com.

    If a domain shall have its own folder, then it is recommended to create a new website and not a aliasdomain.

    Thanks, that cleared something up.
    I works just as long as I don't use the * for automatic subdomain.
    I prefer the * so all subdomains are being redirected, but i'm glad this works for now!
