    How can I setup a catch all sub-domain so if I go to "http//anything.mydomain.com" it will point to "http//mydomain.com"
    In the DNS zone I have tried:
    *.mydomain.com. CNAME mydomain.com.
    but it keeps sending me to the Default PLESK Page.

    Please help
    Thanks,
    John

    issue a

    websrvmng -u --vhost=mydomain.com

    issue a

    httpd restart

    then should work

    mikk, thanks for the reply. Can this be done from within Plesk, or is there a tutorial or something to show me how to do this.

    Thanks,
    John

    No this will all need to be done from a root level shell.

    Best to have a good search over these forums and get yourself familiar with how wrong things can go if you are not used to using shell commands before trying to make changes.

    The changes i showed though are relativly painless and can be done easily once you are logged in as root.

    The paths you need to use vary depending on the OS you are using hence i only gave an outline, if you post your details im sure someone with the same OS will post more accurate paths to the commands.
