    I have read through several of the threads regarding redirects, but have been unable to get redirect working in my environment. I have the ispconfig instance set as primary dns for a domain, lets say mydomain.com. I have a site created (though there is no content in the site), and on the domain's configuration page I go to the redirect tab and have entered http ://othersite.net/ (another site hosted elsewhere) and have tried each flags option and a variety of combinations of flags and SEO Redirect options.

    From what I've seen in other threads and in a few how-to type posts around the web, it seems like I should use the R,L flags and the URL and be expect for requests to mydomain.com to get redirected to othersite.net, but I just the the default 404 for my ispconfig instance. Could someone point me in the right direction?

    Your expectations sound correct. Make sure you don't have any typo's (eg. the space char in "http ://othersite.net/" above). Do you have the correct IP address selected for the website?

    Thanks - I had to insert the space because the forum forbids links in your first post.
    I think you may have identified my foolish oversight. We do have two web hosts in our cluster, DNS is pointed toward #1, but the site is set to #2. I changed DNS, and am giving it a few minutes before I confirm.

    Yup, that was it. Failed to double-check the basics. Thanks for the reminder.
