    hi all!

    I sucessfully followed the guide to installing debian, isp3 dovecot and squirrel ect with a couple of tweeks to get it to actually work.

    I was wondering is it possible to do something like the guide does for webmail so it can be accessed at mail.domain.com or domain.com/webmail but for ispconfig port?

    something along the lines of admin.domain.com or domain.com/admin/ instead of domain.com:8080 but have it work for all hosted domains *.com/admin

    Thanks in advance. I will say im not a total noob at *nix but im getting better so please be nice to me :)

    I would use subdomains :) are friendly..

    ex.: admin.domain.com

    1 -> go to dns
    2 -> your zone
    3 -> DNS records
    4 -> add new A
    4 ->
    host: admin​
    IP: your server IP​
    SAVE
    5 -> go to Sites
    6 -> Add subdomain (i imagine that you have a domain already)
    7 ->
    host: admin​
    domain.com​
    Redirection: L​

    SAVE

    8 -> TEST :D

    Thanks for your reply! Ill try it later when I'm home.

    Just a quick thought. Did u mean to put an 'A' record? Would CName work too?
    I have the DNS on cloudflare (not brave enough yet to roll my own lol)

    From my point of view i would use A record because DNS lookup directly returns IP Address to the client.

    A points from domain to ip and CNAME points from name to name...

    Ex.:
    your.domain.com. IN A 190.90.1.5
    yoursub.domain.com. IN CNAME server2.srv.com

    It works but ...

    Thanks for that it works great!

    Only one little thing tho. would it be possible to make it so that when they go to admin.domain.com it dosent show my hosting domain in the url bar.

    i.e at the moment it does this:

    admin.domain.com ---> admin.myhost.com:8080

    can it do this:
    admin.domain.com --> admin.domain.com:8080

    thanks again

    (we are talking about APACHE) At first sight you will find some tutorials that use "rewrite" URL... but its not the solution.
    In this case you will be proxying I suggest you to read more about using "mod_proxy"

    i give you an example from the official doc:

    ########################################

    Code:
    RewriteRule ^/(.*) http://other.example.com/$1 [P]
    
    # is better expressed as..
    ProxyPass / http://other.example.com/
    #########################################

    Official wiki: http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/WhenNotToUseRewrite

    Im with less time this week may be the next one i create a little tutorial as reply :)
