    Hi guys,

    i know that there are like a thousand threads about this, but i still don't get it :(

    I want to have a few co-domains that are redirected to a directory within my /web.

    For example, i've got the domain www.domain.tld and i've just created test.domain.tld in the co-domain section of that domain in ispconfig.
    Now i've created a .htaccess file in the root of my website and entered the following lines in there:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^test\.domain\.tld [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.tld/test$1 [R]

    This works. BUT, i don't want people to see the www.domain.tld/test in their address bar, i just want them to see test.domain.tld.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks alot!

    I am having a similar problem. Links on pages within the co-domain are redirecting to the master domain and its sub-folders. Co-domains with links are supposed to link to the Co-domain and its sub-folders.

    What I get:
    sub.domain.tld with a link to something.html in the same folder redirects to
    domain.tld/subdomain/something.html instead of

    This shouldn't work this way. What is the problem?

    If I understand your question corretly - Try this:

    Drop this in your Apache Directives (Optional) section (under IPS Site):

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^([^.]+)\$
    RewriteRule (.*) /%1/$1 [L]

    What should this do exactly? I've implemented it like you said and adjusted it to fit to the correct domain, but it doesn't do anything..

    I suppose I am saying that the redirect should show up as
    instead of
    in the address bar.

    Those apache directives don't seem to change anything. I think you might have pointed me in the right direction though. I will look into how to use apache directives better and see if I can't come up with something that works.

    I just found some useful information on this problem. I tried it out and it works for me. This should help you jorizzzz because it solved my problem.
