    Hi, just so we get off on the right foot I am a complete newb with this webhosting. I am doing it for the love of computers and learning new things. Not to mention that a friend wanted to run a site or two for his gaming friends.

    I installed the ISPconfig verson following the perfect server tutorial for ubuntu 10.4

    my server is a super micro, superserver 5015MT, yeah I know OLD fella.

    here is a synopsis of the current situation.

    I have 1 client with 2 websites. one for his "corp/guild" and one for his "alliance"
    I have the corp site set up and running sortof.
    I have a duplicate of that site setup for the alliance.

    as you can see one works fine but the other throws an error 500 and for the life of me I can't figure out why. you can access the web roots with the as well as addresses and they both show the generic index.html supplied with the account generation.

    Have I miss something.

    there is an index.php file in the ./killboard directory that worked beautifully to install and setup the killboard on the but the same file causes an internal server error on site.

    setting are exactly the same only in different directories ofcourse.

    cgi - check
    ssi - check
    suexec - check
    own error doc - check
    auto subdomain - www
    ssl - check
    php - suphp
    active - check

    have set up subdomain for each to redirect the to the correct directory path. in this case ./web/killboard/ from their respective root dir's.

    I just can't figure this one out.

    I went so far as to try creating a seperate client for it and that doesn't work either. Same problem.

    I had this working before without ispconfig useing nothing other that phpmyadmin and manually setting up the httpd.conf and apache2.conf files. what a PITA that was. ;)

    It updates every minute.

    Okay I can see that now but I was having this issue for over a day and a half. The client's sub-directories we all set up and it seemed everything was fine untill I tried to access this sub-directory containing php scripts. Anyway I am just glad it working now :) I just wish I knew why........ ha.

    If you want to setup subdomains with a separate directory, then you should add them as new websites. The redirect method has its limitations when you want to use scripts in that directory or add a .htaccess file there.
