Forced ads for ISPConfig with .htaccess . I wrote this “how to” for those who want to place forced ads on their ISPConfig server. Probably you can setup forced ads in different ways but I found the way descibed here. I am using Debian Etch and ISPConfig 2.2.19 in this example. What needs to be done: - edit apache config - create .htaccess files - create header and footer with ads - disable the ads on accounts that upgrade I had to enable php server wide for this to work, and since i give all my clients php, it is not a big deal, but if anyone can update this with a meathod to only allow php in the /var/www and /var/www/ads that would be appreciated Let’s show where our ISPConfig server is capable of, here we go: STEP 1 Enable php system wide vi /etc/mime.types uncomment out the following: vi /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/php5.conf STEP 2 First lets edit apache.conf vi /etc/apache2/apache2.conf Towards the bottom of the apache2.conf you will find immeidately after add Below that you will find change this to save and /etc/init.d/apache2 restart STEP 3 Now lets create a directory mkdir /var/www/ads STEP 4 we are going to create two php files now lets make footer.php with your footer ad and lets make blank.php that is actually blank STEP 5 Creating .htaccess file use any text editor you like most of them will give you another extention, but rename the file to .htaccess and have it contain the following: php_value output_buffering 4098 AddType application/x-httpd-php htm AddType application/x-httpd-php html php_value auto_append_file '/var/www/ads/footer.php' And thats it, now every site on the server will have your forced footer, the same goes if you want a header. TO DISABLE ADS ON AN INDIVIDUAL SITE Create another .htaccess file with the following php_value output_buffering 4098 AddType application/x-httpd-php htm AddType application/x-httpd-php html php_value auto_append_file '/var/www/ads/blank.php' and place it in the /web directory of that site And thats it guys, you now have forced ads. I am going to try to write a module that will allow this to be controled from ispconfig cp.
