    Hello all,

    I want to know if I can do own webspace and IP for a subdomain cause I want to setup a groupware in a subdomain.
    Is that possible ? How is that managed in ispconfig?

    Sure, no problem. For example, if you want to have a web site sub.example.com, you create a web site in ISPConfig with the host name sub and the domain example.com.
    ISPConfig will automatically create example.com as a Co-Domain so you better remove it from there as example.com is typically assigned to www.example.com.

    okay, thats all clear. But I dont want a mapping from sub.domain.tld to domain.tld.
    I want own webspace and own IP for sup.domain.tld.

    How can I do this?

    Test it out. Let's say you already have a site, www.example.com.

    Just create a new site, only instead of making it "www.example.com" you're going to name it something like "groupware.example.com".

    You'll probably want to avoid creating DNS for the new sub-domain, since you've already got one made for www.example.com and can just edit that.

    Once you create the new groupware.example.com, click on the Co-Domains tab and delete the entry for "example.com" (because the www.example.com already has one for it).

    Once you do those steps you'll have a fully independent sub-domain. It will have its own web space, it's own quotas, etc.

    On ones that I create, I usually set up a user for this so that the sub-domain's files are "owned" by another GNU/Linux system user.

    First, you have to register sub.dom.no-ip.com at no-ip.com, and then you simply create a new web site for sub.dom.no-ip.com in ISPConfig, with sub as host and dom.no-ip.com as domain.

    Dont mix up Co-Domains with DNS records. If you add a co-domain ftp.example.com it means that you create an additional alias for the apache vhost. If you want to get FTP access to ftp.example.com you must add an A or CName record in the DNS manager.

    The code for form actions like adding co-domains is in the directory:


    The is a file named ispconfig_isp_web.inc.php (or similar, dont remember the exact name).
