    Hi all,

    I have a new question in line.

    I initially uploaded the hosting website to the /var/www folder without creating a new site. It worked well but I needed to use subdomain through ISPconfig thus I moved the files to a new site I created in ISPconfig. Now when I browse to the URL it shows me the content of var/www instead of linking to the new site /var/www/domain.tld/web/*

    Im unsure what can be the cause of this and how to troubleshoot it.

    Did you create the subdomain in ISPConfig?

    yes I did, and the subdomain works well.

    if I type in subdomain.domain.tld its works fine but the domain.tld links to /var/www instead of the content of /var/www/domain.tld/web

    its only for this one site.


    Actually now when I checked up on it again this morning I am meet by

    403 Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Thanks to the error message I was able to find another post by you mentioning that the permissions could be wrong, indeed they were.

    I did a chmod 755 /var/www/domain.tld/web

    and everything is working now.
