Redirection, Alias, Subdomains, Folders ?

    I have seen it in other domain management panels (GPLHOST DTC) where, upon creating a subdomain, a folder is automatically created under the "/var/www" folder structure, an "A" record is created in the DNS and the browser shows "subdomain.domain.com" when browsing to it (NOT domain.com/subdomain)

    1. I can create the DNS "A" records for the subdomains manually, that's not a problem.
    2. I can create the subdomain folder in the "/var/www" folder structure with the appropriate permissions, not a problem.

    How can I get ISPConfig to show "subdomain.domain.com" when I browse to "subdomain.domain.com" ?

    I have squirrelmail installed in "/var/www/webmail" and for me to access the squirrelmail page I have to browse to "server.domain.com/webmail" I have created a subdomain "webmail" and have redirection type "L" to "server.domain.com/webmail" hence the browser shows "server.domain.com/webmail" when I browse to "webmail.domain.com"

    Thanks for the help! I could use some links from you guys... thanks again.

    No need to create any folders manually in ispconfig. If you want to have a new folder for a subdomain, just create a new website and enter sub.domain.com in the domain field.
