    I had this working in ispcfg2 but can't get it to work with ispcfg3.

    basically I tried inserting this into /etc/apache2/apache.conf

    Code:
    <VirtualHost 85.214.146.68:80>
    ServerName webmail
    ServerAlias mail.*
    ErrorLog /var/www/webmail/log/error.log
    ServerAdmin postmaster@web-designerz.de
    DocumentRoot /var/www/webmail
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php5 index.php4 index.php3 $
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
    </VirtualHost>#
    
    # Include the virtual host configurations:
    Include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/
    
    tried both including it before
    and after that statement but b0oth times it just goes wrong and redirects all sites/vhosts to the squirrelmail interface :-(

    can someone point out what I am doing wrong here?

    Can you replace
    Code:
    </VirtualHost>#
    with
    Code:
    </VirtualHost>
    ?

    silly mistake, but it didn't change a thing, all vhosts get redirected to the webmail login :-(

    anything else I might be doing wrong?

    Does this happen only if you use the webmail subdomain, or also for the mail subdomain?

    I tried

    same result...

    this is weird. here is the exact vhost settigns I was using in ispcfg3 and it worked and still works perfectly:
    the only difference is that there I was using port 443 but I can't find a good howto generate those security certificates anymore, so I thought I'd settle for port 80

    No, I meant, does this happen only if you use the webmail subdomain, or also for the mail subdomain in the browser?

    I am really not getting it !?

    if I try opening in my browser any domain hsoted on my sever, they all lead to the squirrelmail login.

    if I try mail.anydomain on my server they also lead there?

    does this answer your question? am unsure how to understand your question :)

    Hm, that's really strange. I have no idea why this is happening.

    Hi,

    add the following lines in /etc/apache2/conf.d/apache2-doc

    Alias /webmail /usr/share/squirrelmail/

    <Directory "/usr/share/squirrelmail/">
    Options Indexes FollowSymlinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    AddDefaultCharset off
    </Directory>

    and every virtual domain will have a www.virt-domain.com/webmail

    same problem here, installed ispconfig 3, everything was fine, 2 days, and from that on, problems like not making anymore mail accounts, using only 3- 4 mail accounts max, or it s making me only on one of the test sites, but for the tothers not making, exactlly now i m trying to reinstall ispconfig 3 on a centos 5.2 server, i hope will not get same problems ...
    one other thing ... i have a domain of my own, domain.com let s say , i am trying to make mail accounts for that domain, but no chance.. isconfig created the mail account, let s say admin@domain.com , but is not receiving anything, i can send e-mails, but no receive .... the eror i m getting in the mail that i m sending from is a replay from mailer-daemon that the account doesn t exists.

    one other problem is with fresh new e-mail accounts, each one of them is not registered in var/vmail/domain and trying to connect in that account newlly created i get "connection dropped by IMAP server "

    any ideeas ???

    i m telling again, i m reinstalling ispconfig 3 on a centos 5.3 the problems that i had were on a fedora 10 server

    hope this helps , i just found out myself


    go to /etc/httpd/conf/sites-enabled/mail.domain.comvhost

    assuming u allready created a website mail.domain.com, there u will find the virtualhost settings:

    the settings initially look like this

    <Directory /var/www/mail.domain.com> ( change this to /usr/share/squirrelmail )
    AllowOverride None
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    </Directory>

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/mail.domain.com/web ( change this to /usr/share/squirrelmail )

    ServerName mail.domain.com
    ServerAdmin webmaster@mail.domain.com ( change this with your real e-mail address , eg.: master@domain.com )

    ErrorLog /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/mail.domain.com/error.log (u can leave the error logs in the same place just for not complicating the settings from webmail )

    ErrorDocument 400 /error/400.html
    ErrorDocument 401 /error/401.html
    ErrorDocument 403 /error/403.html
    ErrorDocument 404 /error/404.html
    ErrorDocument 405 /error/405.html
    ErrorDocument 500 /error/500.html
    ErrorDocument 503 /error/503.html

    <Directory /var/www/mail.domain.com/web> ( change this to /usr/share/squirrelmail )
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # ssi enabled
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    Options +Includes
    </Directory>
    <Directory /var/www/clients/client1/webXX/web> ( u can leave it unchanged)
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # ssi enabled
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    Options +Includes
    </Directory>

    # cgi enabled
    <Directory /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/cgi-bin> ( leave this unchanged )
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/cgi-bin/ ( leave this unchanged )
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    AddHandler cgi-script .pl
    # suexec enabled
    SuexecUserGroup webXX clientX
    # mod_php enabled
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
    php_admin_value sendmail_path "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -fwebmaster@mail.domain.com" (change the e-mail address )
    php_admin_value upload_tmp_dir /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/tmp (same unchanged )
    php_admin_value session.save_path /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/tmp (unchanged )


    </VirtualHost>




    in the end the final vhost settings will look like this:

    <quote>

    <Directory /usr/share/squirrelmail>
    AllowOverride None
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    </Directory>

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /usr/share/squirrelmail

    ServerName mail.domain.com
    ServerAdmin master@domain.com

    ErrorLog /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/mail.domain.com/error.log

    ErrorDocument 400 /error/400.html
    ErrorDocument 401 /error/401.html
    ErrorDocument 403 /error/403.html
    ErrorDocument 404 /error/404.html
    ErrorDocument 405 /error/405.html
    ErrorDocument 500 /error/500.html
    ErrorDocument 503 /error/503.html

    <Directory /usr/share/squirrelmail>
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # ssi enabled
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    Options +Includes
    </Directory>
    <Directory /usr/share/squirrelmail>
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # ssi enabled
    AddType text/html .shtml
    AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
    Options +Includes
    </Directory>

    # cgi enabled
    <Directory /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/cgi-bin>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    </Directory>
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/cgi-bin/
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    AddHandler cgi-script .pl
    # suexec enabled
    SuexecUserGroup webXX clientX
    # mod_php enabled
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
    php_admin_value sendmail_path "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -fmaster@domain.com"
    php_admin_value upload_tmp_dir /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/tmp
    php_admin_value session.save_path /var/www/clients/clientX/webXX/tmp


    </VirtualHost>

    restart httpd and ure done ;)

    Accesing http://mail.domain.com u will get the answer http://mail.domain.com/src/login.php

    This is strictly for squirrelmail, but i think it can work easilly
    NOTE: do not try to set the location directl;y to the src folder, it won t work trust me :) i tryed allready :)


    i hope it helps u :) at least for me worked perfectly

    adding this to apache directives for each Site seems to work nicely

    Redirectpermanent /webmail http://MY_IP_ADDRESS/webmail

    just make sure a symlink called webmail is set up in apache root im my case /var/www/ (on Debian) to /usr/share/squirrelmail/
