    I have a site that's exceeded his quota. If you now go to the url of that site a other site on my server is displaying?

    Is it possible to redirect it to a warning page? Or to just show no site at all. Its a weird configuration in ISPC to just show a other page, even the admin is redirected to the other side. Or did I misconfigurate it my self?
    I have searched the forum and found out there is no such function in ISPC and I have to use vhost, but don't know exactly what to do.

    I can search for a solution ( and the working of vhost) but I thought I ask first here because I am thinking somebody already must have had that same problem.

    I've added this to our bugtracker, so we will check that.

    In the meantime you can put an index.html in /var/www. E.g.:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    <html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
        <link rel="shortcut icon" href="/favicon.ico" />
        <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
    	<style type="text/css"><!--

    What you describe is the normal behaviour of apache when no default vhost exists. If apache gets a request for a non existing vhost (e.g. because it is disabled) then apache will show the first site on the same Ip address.

    You can add a default site which catcjes these requests by clicking on nwe website in ispconfig and use "000default.tld" as domain name.
