    Hello!

    I've searched during a little time in the documentation, but nothing found about that.

    Now I've ispconfig installed on my server, I've created a new customer and his new website.
    (My domain name is a free DynDNS, server is on LAN with 1 LAN IP adress)
    I can access the new website on http://mydomain.dyndns.org/~user
    and I have not rightly understood if http://user.mydomain.dyndns.org is possible.

    If it's possible with this free DynDNS, how can I make it ?

    Thanks for your answers :)

    With dyndns I know you can name your dyndns-Name as wildcard,
    what means

    abc.myname.ath.cx results in the same as xyz.myname.ath.cx
    next thing you would do is either to change the userhome webconfig in apache or you just use mod_rewrite to rewrite e.g. abc.myname.ath.cx to myname.ath.cx/~abc

    Ok thx,

    I'm not very well in english... :D
    So if I've understood rightly, I can't use user.mydomain.dyndns.org but only mydomain.dyndns.org/~user :'( with DynDNS free service.

    humm, it's already myname.ath.cx/~abc, anything more to do in my apache config ? And what does "e.g." mean ?

    what I meant was, you CAN use it the way you want to.
    You just have to make sure that you have a DNS for that.
    (wildcard enabled).
    E.g. means for example (from latin exempli gratia)

    So if it is myname.ath.cx then enable wildcard for that.
    That means
    abc.myname.ath.cx
    resolves to the same IP address
    myname.ath.cx does

    Then you just have to make sure that apache rewrites abc.myname.ath.cx to myname.ath.cx/~abc
    Just look for any tutorials with mod_rewrite

    Ok thanks you for this nice explanation :)

    I'll look for that in my config of Apache, and my DNS ;)

    Thx :)
