    You can not access webmail with symlinks from sites for security reasons (php open basedir restriction).

    May in the version 3.0.1.3 was it possible....
    One of our customer use the webmailscript wich creates symlinks for the webmail. Many users too ....??!!

    ISPConfig 3.0.1.4 uses stricter security settings to protect the website data of all websites to be accessed from another website of the same vhost. You can edit the amsetr template for the vhost and remove the open_basedir restrictions if you dont want this additional security, but I highly recommend to not remove it.

    Thats correct but in the newer version it is changed. You must edit the cgi_starter script for that domain and comment the open_basedir line. Restart apache to make sure it works.

    Hi
    Or where could I add automatically a line, that in all vhosts the alias /webmail to /var/www/webmail is allowed, so that I do not neat remove this restriction?

    Thanks

    The best way is to make a new .vhost config file especially for the webmail subdomain.
