    Hi everyone!
    a few months ago e installed and configures ispconfig, i like it!
    and keep it to my personal host.
    so.. what now?

    i wonder cuz i access a domain that i own, via a blackberry..
    blackberry add the 'www'. so... when i try to access it .. don't show the domain content but the content of /var/www/index.html

    this on every domain that i host.... this is not normal..

    for one domain specific domain i choose the '*.' as in the manual shows to get all subdomains pointing to

    but never work.. thanks to blackberry i tried '' '' non work.

    al leads me to '/var/www' directory content.

    please help!!!

    Did you add sites in ISPConfig.
    If you dont add a domain to SITES it will default to the root of your webserver (eg: /var/www).

    i can access the domain http://domain.tld
    it leads me to the 'site' root folder.

    but if i try
    leads me to the whole apache documents root folder '/var/www/'

    i just notice it thanks to an blackberry mobile.

    its kinda weird.. i can't figure out whats going on..

    I add zones with the Add Zone wizzard, and don't touch any records, i just do what the ispconfig 3 manual says.

    thanks for the reply!

    for www subdomain thats done with Auto-Subdomain when you setup a website, or you can have *. for redirect all subdomains to the site root folder.

    if you want to setup a subdomain called ICE for domain MYSITE.COM (, you would go to SITES/SUBDOMAIN OF WEBSITE and then put:

    Host -> ice
    Domain ->
    Redirect Type -> L
    Redirect Path -> /ice/

    Active -> check

    Redirection Types - what the URL in web browser will be:
    L = =>
    R = =>

    Then add the dns CNAME or A record for ICE, restart apache and it should work.
