    I had ISPconfig setup and working on a server.
    Via this setup I successfully created the user/domain/subdomain
    with the Vhosts all working correctly.

    www.domain.tld -> /web1/
    .domain.tld ->/web1/
    forums.domain.tld ->/web1/forums/

    but no matter what i tried i could not get the FTP to allow logins.

    so uninstalled ISPconfig.

    reinstalled ISPconfig, after completely reinstalling proftpd.

    now the existing domain pointing to /web1/
    works fine
    but no matter where I add the subdomain forums.* it will not add the vhost as before.

    it will add it as a server alias to www.domain.tld .. which isnt what i had before

    I do have a backup of the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf .... but without knowing where in the database to actually readd the forums. subdomain its of no use.
    Can anyone give me any pointers please :)

    *ps. I have tried pretty much all the suggestions so far in this forums, with no luck.

    You can not readd this manually.

    This might be what you are missing:

    stevie, how did you get forums.domain.ltd ??

    The only subdomain I can get to work is www.domain.ltd ....

    first add your subdomains to the dns

    sub3. etc

    then under your www.domain.tld/web/ folder add the relevant folders

    then in ISPconfig -> ispmanager -> sites -> www.domain.tld
    in the apache directive add

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}   ^sub1.domain.tld [NC]
    RewriteRule   ^/(.*)$ /sub1/$1  [L]
    making sure that the subdomain AND the folder are named identical

    for each extra subdomain add a new Rewritecond AND RewriteRule


    The code snippet was pulled from another thread on this forums, that Till pointed me to.
