    Ubuntu 18 .04
    server set up with the perfect server , ISPCONFIG tutorial.
    my level of knowledge noob.

    I have this server up an running under domain pointing to my public ip subsequently pointing to my ipv4
    everything in that one is working correctly. Now i installed virtual box and set up a media server on it. I registered for another domain, and its also pointing to my public Ip. So what are the proper steps to configure my server so when is asked for redirects to ipv4 instead of the one from ??

    i tried setting up a Dns where zone is and ipv4 is but still when i tries to access remotely it redirects to

    Please help my to understand how to resolve this?

    Depends on the service you want to use. You can also use your firewall to forward a port from the server to your virtual machine. You might want to have a look at

    This is wrong since ISPConfig setup requires Command hostname -f should always show

    If it is already setup, and you only want to proxy your webpage, then just use apache with mod_proxy (maybe needs to be enabled with "a2enmod proxy"):

    Configure the domain in ispconfig and in options -> apache directive add:
    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyPass /.well-known !
    ProxyPass /
    ProxyPassReverse /
    You will find additional information on what each line does at
