    in a webserver in production with ISPConfig, there's a website with a part in http and a part in https.

    The Apache DocumentRoot of is /home/www/web99/web/ while the DocumentRoot of is /home/www/web99/web_ssl/ (as in the Plesk panel, which has separate directories: httpdocs and httpsdocs).

    In November I've changend a file of ISPConfig and so, when the option SSL in the website control panel has selected, the Apache directives in /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf are correct.

    Unfurtunately, I missed the how-to (perhaps copied from a trhead in HowtoForge, but I don't find it) and now, after the upgrade of ISPConfig, the file are rewriting.

    I've two questions, please:
    1) What is (and where is) the ISPConfig file who writes the Apache directives in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf?
    2) Is this the best way to obtain the desired behavior?

    Thanks a lot

    grep -R 'VirtualHost' /dir/to/ispconfig

    I assume ISPConfig is mostly written in PHP. You should then find the string VirtualHost somewhere. Sorry don't know the details.

    Great, thank you very much! :)

    The file who writes the Apache directives in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf is:

    I've added a suffix "_ssl" at line 1589 (ISPConfig version 2.2.23), I've restarted the control panel (/etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart) and now the DocumentRoot for the VirtualHosts :443 (https) are different (/web_ssl instead /web). :D

    Is this a good way or there may be some problems?

    Generally I do not see a problem with this solution, but you should be aware that your change will be overridden after a update and you will have to modify the file again.
