    how do i set this up properly?

    i have a domain dat.co.nz

    www.dat.co.nz goes too the main website

    i have a directory called /something

    www.dat.co.nz/something - works

    now, how do i make a domain like test.dat.co.nz foward too www.dat.co.nz/somthing???

    i have tried using the foward option under the co-domains section in the users site but when i type in test.dat.co.nz it goes too the main site - www.dat.co.nz instead of www.dat.co.nz/something ?

    how can i fix this up? in the co-domains i have set test.dat.co.nz to foward too http://www.dat.co.nz/something, and many others (with and without http:// with and without www.) -

    what am i doing wrong in ispconfig?

    how can i do this manually?

    How do I redirect visitors from my old site to my new site?

    You can get visitors from your old site to come to your new site in one of three ways:
    You can simply leave a message on your old site with a link to your new site.

    You can put in a meta tag (a special piece of HTML code) that will automatically redirect users from your old website to your new web site. The code looks like this:
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=THENEWURL">

    Where "1" is the number of seconds until the redirect occurs and "THENEWURL" is the URL of your website (e.g. "http://www.abc.com/"). Don't forget to include the "http://" part of the URL or the code won't work.


    that will do the trick...lol

    ISPConfig can only act as a domain if you designate it ONLY as a domain server. So if you want to have both domain forwarding AND a server you will need two separate servers with two different IP's.

    n1kol1s has a good suggestion. This is an easy way to redirect people to your new site Or you can get domain forwarding from a service. It is only a couple dollars per year and a more permanant solution.

    1and1 cheap domain forwarding

    also 1and1 automatically forwards sites with and without "www"

    Did you have a look at chapter 2.3.2 here: http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/manual_en/manual_kunde_en_src.htm#4_2_3

    There are also other ways of redirecting, for example with PHP's header() function or like this: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html

    doesnt work,

    as ive said, ive already tried doing this as pre manuals instructions but its not working,

    when i type in something.domain.com its supposed too foward too domain.com/something

    why isnt this working?

    how can i set this manually? i dont want too have too create multiple individual sites for each co domain please, i would like one site with multi codomains going too directories inside the main site,

    very simple stuff, as i said i dont want too create multiple sites just for redirects,

    why isnt the fowarding working? how can i set this manually or at least check some cfg files for it

    Can you post the vhost configuration of that web site from Vhosts_ispconfig.conf here?
    Any errors in Apache's error log?

    If you use an apache server you could do it like this:

    1. create the file ".htaccess" within your root web folder (where normaly index.html should be).
    2. add the following line to .htaccess:
    redirect permanent / http://www.dat.co.nz/somthing
    3. save and you're ready

    what about having subdomains just work off the bat without forcing a rewrite?

    I want requests for sub.domain.xyz to return content from /var/www/www.domain.xyz/web/sub, but I don't want the URL to show "domain.xyz/sub", I want it to read "sub.domain.xyz".

    at the moment I have the subdomain setup as a co-domain, and the forward is set to "sub". Not the desired outcome though.
