    In the /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf there are 2 lines per domain by default that conflict with common dircectories used by CMS Software.

    So when I go to I get a 404. I use Genu for my personal site. While its easy enough for me to comment the second line listed above, most users cannot do this. I don't think Genu is the only CMS that uses the users directory in its structure and it would be better if ISPConfig used a less common name. I'm sure "ispusers" would work fine for 99.9% of people.

    Also, I've been unable to figure out why these aliased dirs are there in the first place.

    Lastly, you guys do a great job on ISPConfig, and I just sent off my email to join the Development Crew to help with Translation as I speak English, French, German and Esperanto. I'd love to do an Esperanto translation :) Unfotunatly none of my secondary languages are strong, but the English translation of ISPConfig seems to be weak and that is where I wish the lend a hand the most as it is my native language.

    If you don't need those two Alias lines, you can disable them by changing the make_vhosts() function in /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/config.lib.php.

    I appreciate it, still wonder what they're for though :)

    I had the same problem, and the solution didn't work.

    What I found out is that at least in 2.2.6 and probably all later versions you (also?) need to edit /root/ispconfig/isp/conf/vhost.conf.master and comment out the AliasMatch lines

    And might I add that it would be great if this would be a configurable option through ispconfig web interface
