    As stated in two other threads I tried to install Z-Push in my ISPConfig installation on nginx:

    The problem is that I can changen either the root of the subdomain nor the open_basedir independently.

    That's why I saw no other possibility for me than to set up the nginx and PHP-FPM configurations outside of ISPConfig.

    If there would have been a way please let me know, otherwise it would be great if these kind of things would be possible in the future!

    Thank you!

    Setup the subdomain as website. Thats the way it is intended for softare that needs its own folder and describe din the manual.

    Personally I dont use zpush, but several customers reported to me that they use it sucessfully in a normal ispconfig website. zpush is writte in php, so it should work in a normal site and the nginx vhost config from zpush is quite basic, so I see no reason why it shoud not work when you create a new website for this subdomain and install zpush in it.

    Thank you for your answer.

    I just found

    Just to clarify:
    I already have a domain set up.
    I tried to set up the subdomain as vhost subdomain.
    I did not get it running due to the inability to set open-basedir and custom root folder (as stated in the linked threads).
    All the tutorials/howtos I found on this topic use apache, I found it hard to achieve the same with nginx in ISPConfig3.

    You suggest do set up not as vhost-subdomain but as an own domain?

    Thank you!

    Vhostsubdomains exist only to allow migrations of websites from some other controlpanels, thats hy they are disabled by default. Thir functionlity is limited as they are just a addon for a existing dite, they do not replace a site. in ipconfig you should crete a new website when a softare needs its own directory, thats described in the manual. If the site is created for a second, third or fourth level domain does not matter.

    Thank you for this clarification – I will try again to set it up within ISPConfig!

    Z-Push is now working as it should.
    I will try to set it up within a ghost-subdomain when the next RC or stable is released!
