subdomain to other documentroot

Using a single web hosting account to host multiple sites

subdomain to other documentroot

Postby commentator » Fri Jul 25, 2008 4:00 pm

Hi,

I would like to do the following for the webmail subdomains:
webmail.<all domains here> to /var/www/webmailclient/
webmail2.<all domains here> to /var/www/webmailclient/

*.<all domains here> to /var/www/default/

<all domains here> = for every domain hosted

is this possible ?
and how to do this?

Do you have access to the httpd.conf file? You can use the following <VirtualHost>s
Code: Select all
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName   _default_
  DocumentRoot /var/www/default
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName   webmail.example.com
  ServerAlias  webmail.* webmail2.*
  DocumentRoot /var/www/webmailclient
</VirtualHost>

Yes but I want to to this for https, so there is only one VirtualHost possible.
That's why I'm trying to rewrite it :)

Why does https make it not possible?

I'm not sure you can change the document root unless you remove the DocumentRoot from the <VirtualHost> or at all. Try
Code: Select all
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail2?\. [NC]
RewriteRule ^(/.*)$ /var/www/webmailclient$1 [PT,L]


What is your current <VirtualHost> like?

Hi, Thanks for your reply.

Only one virtualhost for an ip allowed

I want it for the subdomains webmail and webmail2
all other subdomains (including www) -> /var/www/default

Code: Select all
<VirtualHost myip:443>
ServerName webmail
ServerAlias webmail.*
DocumentRoot /var/www/webmailclient

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
UseCanonicalName Off

SSLEngine on
SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/apache.pem

</VirtualHost>

but now every request is redirected to my webmailclient

so www.domain.co = webmail.domain.co
thats why I want to rewrite the dir

Couldn't you use * instead of the ip address for the <VirtualHost>?

You can try
Code: Select all
<VirtualHost myip:443>
  ServerName _default_
  DocumentRoot /var/www/default

  Options +FollowSymLinks

  RewriteEngine On

  RewriteCond  %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail2?\. [NC]
  RewriteRule ^(/.*)$ /var/www/webmail$1 [PT,L]

  DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

  AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
  UseCanonicalName Off

  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/apache.pem
</VirtualHost>

But it'll probably make it /var/www/default/var/www/webmail.

What is your working <VirtualHost> (not the webmail one)?

rewrite not working:
Code: Select all
[Tue Jul 29 23:26:08 2008] [error] [client xxx] File does not exist: /var/www/default/var


looks like the rewrite writes behind the document root

I have only one vhost for https
so all https shows now the webmail and I want to prevent that, that;s why I want to rewrite the docroot

Did you have a 403 <VirtualHost> before you started this? If you did, post it.

Try
Code: Select all
<VirtualHost myip:443>
  ServerName _default_
  DocumentRoot /var/www

  Options +FollowSymLinks

  RewriteEngine On

  RewriteCond  %{HTTP_HOST} ^webmail2?\. [NC]
  RewriteRule ^(/.*)$ /webmail$1 [PT,L]

  RewriteRule ^(/.*)$ /default$1 [PT,L]

  DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

  AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
  UseCanonicalName Off

  SSLEngine on
  SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/apache.pem
</VirtualHost>

What is the URL (webmail or something else, what subdirectory, etc.)?
What does your error log say about the error?
