    Hello,

    How do I change vhost.conf so that domain.com/httpdocs, www.domain.com/httpdocs and IP/httpdocs point to subdomain.domain.com/httpdocs.

    I've tried to insert DocumentRoot into vhost.conf but it doesnt work for me (yet?).

    I intend to use the original domain.com/httpdocs as a storage area for symlinking.

    currently vhost looks like most of the posts i've read
    <Directory /home/httpd/vhosts/<domain>/httpdocs>
    php_admin_value open_basedir /home/httpd/vhosts/<domain>/httpdocs
    php_admin_value safe_mode 0
    php_admin_value max_execution_time 6000
    </Directory>

    Also, does "safe_mode 0" turn off safe_mode? How is it turned off for a specific domain.

    Yes it turns off safe mode. When you put those statements/directives into a vhost.conf file for a given domain, it will affect *that* domain.

    After making changes to vhost.conf, you must remember to do the following commands at the SSH shell prompt:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=domain.com
    service httpd restart

    Note: Replace 'domain.com' with the name of the domain you are reconfiguring. There are many ways of restarting httpd/Apache, so depending on your OS that command may be a bit different.

    For your other question 'How do I change vhost.conf so that domain.com/httpdocs, www.domain.com/httpdocs and IP/httpdocs point to subdomain.domain.com/httpdocs.' This would be done using RewriteCond and RewriteRule directives in the vhost.conf for the domains you wish to redirect. There are many recent posts where I have given examples.
