    Thats normal as the default vhost works onyl if you do not assign any other site to this IP. The recommended and only reliable way of running phpmyadmin and webmail is to create a new website like and install a webmail client of your choice into this website.

    thx, but its not working for me, first the problem is, when i add my domain, in the vhost file the documentroot is this:
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs/squirrelmail/

    but if i add an other site with a non-main domain, then it works and adds:
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/

    You can not add the main domain as a vhost in apache. Please change the hostname of your server so that it is not identical with any domain e.g. that you want ot use as vhost, change it e.g. to as we use it in the perfect setup guides for that reason.

    ok thx, the vhost problem is solved, but the main problem is still a problem.

    I add the website :, but when i type it to the browser there is nothing :) do i have to add an A record to my dns?

    Yes, you have to add a dns a-record for this subdomain.
