    Hi All,

    is there a way to preview the newly created sites before DNS change takes effect?

    thanks, but will it not be a good idea to improve this leak in the ispconfig code, i think this is leak because editing some files to enable preview is not a good way... because most of the clients are "low level" users - and forcing them to edit some files is a bad idea, beside that editing some host files to see a simple website seems not very professional for the clients

    I will suggest very simple fix: when creating a website the source code must only add an alias to the virtual host for example when creating site on server just adding an alias to apache virtual host : ServerAlias <---- simple fix but works for me, the only thing what schould be done is adding DNS entry which points to *, and then all customers problems go away......

    Another preview

    What i normally do if a preview is required:

    Within ISPConfig i create a new website for the client, like (A temporary subdomain).

    Doing so, the client can verify the site, even before changing the DNS-records for that domainname.

    If everything is ok, i change the to by changing the hostname and domainname within ISPConfig for that specific website.

    A very simple but useful & practic solution.
