Hi there,


I'm using A2T version 1.5.3 and it's running smoothly.
I got all the functions working (mail, ftp, etc) but I still have one question.
I've been reading a lot of postings here, but unfortunately I couldn't find an answer:

I'm running multiple domains on my A2T server, using Virtual hosts in the config file. As I said: this runs perfect.
However, when I want to make use of Uebimiau I must enter the main-domain at all times. In other words:

I would like to provide a 'uebimiau-url' to my customer which points to his/her own domain.

eg: http://www.customerdomain.com/uebimiau

instead of what it currently is: http://www.mydomain.com/uebimiau


In the end I would also want to rename the uebimiau-folder t a more userfriendly name. However, I'm not sure if that would have any impact on the uebimiau application? In other words: can I simply rename that folder to something else such as 'webmail' without risking uebimiau to stop working?

eg: http://www.customerdomain.com/uebimiau

would become http://www.customerdomain.com/webmail


Does all this makes any sence? And more important: does anyone has some useful tips about this?

Many thanks in advance for all efforts Wink


Cheerz!

This should be fairly simple...

go to the http://www.uebimiau.org/ site and download the latest version... The download will already be named webmail...

in yur htdocs file where you have the customers domain folder put the webmail folder there... now they can log in through their domain... http://theirdomain/webmail...

Hi, thanks for your reply.

This means that I have to copy the 'webmailfolder' to each and every single subdirectory which represents a hosted domein?

However, I think I founf a very quick and easy solution: using DNS

I forgot to tell that I;m running my own DNS servers for the domains I'm hosting. So this is what I did:

I simply created a new record: webmail.theirdomain.com pointing to the webmailserver.
On that webmailserver I use Virtual hosts to point this webmail.theirdomain.com to the general apache2triad/uebimiau directory.

This way, all customers can use their own webmail.theirdomain.com url to access the very same Uebimiau folder.

One down-side: You cannot personalize the webmail since they all access the same folder....

Thanks for your input, I hope when someone needs the same features, they will be glad to read both our solutions Wink

Cheerz!

you could have alias'ed "Webmail"

Code:

# Aliases: Add here as many aliases as you need (with no limit). The format is
# Alias fakename realname
#
# Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL.  So "/icons" isn't aliased in this
# example, only "/icons/".  If the fakename is slash-terminated, then the
# realname must also be slash terminated, and if the fakename omits the
# trailing slash, the realname must also omit it.
#
# We include the /icons/ alias for FancyIndexed directory listings.  If you
# do not use FancyIndexing, you may comment this out.
#
Alias /icons/ "D:/apache2triad/icons/"

<Directory "D:/apache2triad/icons">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>



So


Code:

Alias /webmail/ "D:/apache2triad/htdocs/uebimiau/"

<Directory "D:/apache2triad/htdocs/uebimiau/">
    Options Indexes MultiViews
    AllowOverride AuthConfig
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>


Should work equally well.
