    I've this domain, created only for testing purposes, "ismyservice.net"

    I created a website for a demo client, setup with 'auto www'

    This has created /var/www/clients/client1/web2

    In subfolder web/ there is the index.html. This is working for "ismyservice.net", and also with "www" before.

    Now I see I've already this folder /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/stats.
    So I created an index.html with "<h1>stats</h1>" inside it.

    I create a subdomain
    - host c1w2
    - domain ismyservice.net
    - redirect type: R, L (But I've not understand the differences....)
    - redirect path: /stats/

    I've a dns A entry for c1w2 pointing to same ip of ismyservice.net

    I save, and wait the canonical minute

    When I load the page c1w2.ismyservice.net, I got a first reply with a 302 redirecting browser to http://c1w2.ismyservice.net/stats/

    Now the browser got a 302 with redirection to "http://c1w2.ismyservice.net/stats/error/401.html" ...

    401 redirects "n times" to 401 ... and browser then stop warning me about infinite loop.

    What's the error?
    Must I creat a .htaccess file inside some folder, or there is something I missed to do in ispconfig ?

    You must not use redirect type R(,L) in this case.
    This is a 302 redirect to folder "stats" on each call to this subdomain!
    Use "no flag".

    I've done some testing

    I've created 'c1w5' as CNAME of my domain.tld. [with final dot]

    I've created a subdomain c1w5 pointing to /prova/ subfolder (it's relative to /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/)

    I got what I want both with "No Flag", and with "L" only flag
    - the content of /var/www/clients/client1/web2/web/prova/index.php
    - the url is NOT modified
    - no 30x http codes

    So... Is it better to use or not to use the L flag ?

    As Croydon told you, NO use any redirect, just no flag!
