    Ive just installed the ISPconfig Vmware appliance, and i have 2 questions.

    How do i change the password for the user root for mysql?

    I now i can create domains in the ispconfig controlcenter.

    But what if i want zzz.domain.tld to point to the folder /var/www/myfolder or another folder.. can i edit the /etc/apache2/sites-available or will the fuck up ISPconfig :p

    How do i do that?

    You can do this with the "mysqladmin" command:

    mysqladmin -u root -p password yourrootsqlpassword

    "yourrootsqlpassword" is the new mysql password. The command then asks you for the current mysql password which is ispconfig if I remember correctly.

    Afterwards you will have to change the mysql password in the file /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/

    ISPConfig uses its own folder namimng scheme, you can not change this without programming. Instead of pinting a vhosts to abother location, you should copy the contents of the website to the direcory that ISPConfig created for the website or symlink it.
