    Hi again!


    I am trying to use custom directory path to be used in a sub domain, but an error thrown stating that the path needs to be relative. Is it really not possible to have custom directory as sub domain redirect path?

    Thats not possible. Otherwise your customers would be able to redirect subdomains e.g. to /etc directory and then dwonload your passwd file for all server accounts.

    Add a dns a-record for the subdomain or a dns cname record

    @till: ahh, I see, but the system should be able to restrict the users to only able to choose directory where they have privilege. but alright, thanks :)

    @srijan: can you please elaborate more? thanks!

    I do agree with the Till's point.
