parking domains

    Ok, iv never used plesk before on unix... im used to whm/cpanel

    in whm/cpanel, you have the option to configure 'Parked or Pointed Domains'

    This basically adds an alias to the webserver... so any requests for say... domain.net use the www dir from domain.com
    domain.com being the main domain.

    Plesk doesnt seem to have this option... including alot of other configuration options it seems to lack :(

    This is why 4PSA's software exists, to add more functionality to the base Plesk control panel... Their Total Domains package fills in several missing gaps, such as Domain Parking

    According to 4PSA documentation, yes it will be received by the email account of the primary domain, even if the email is posted to the parked domain.

    About 4PSA

    It is cool that 4PSA add good addon. But why should I paid a new licence for something like true aliasing (Parking) is not implement in a Software like Plesk.

    I just don't understand why Plesk didn't implement that essential feature for web hosting.

    Obviously it would have been nice if Plesk had included the feature (and many others), but until that time, you can either make the changes manually, or pay the fee to get the GUI addon. Personally, I chose not to do it manually and have to keep track of what I have done on what server, there was a time when I did and it was more work to try and remember than the small fee that 4PSA charges. To me, time is money, paying a small amount to save me time is worth it.

    Also, if you have tech's that work for you, instead of having them monkey around with separate files on different servers, it becomes easier and sometimes safer to have a nice GUI which they can use. Leaves less chance of them making mistakes...

    TotalDomains is very cheap and looks great -- my only question is why 4PSA do not have versions for 100 Domain Licenses of PLESK!
  9. jamesyeeoc

    jamesyeeoc Guest

    I can't answer that one, but still the 300 domain license is pretty cheap. Looks like there are a few new features in 7.5.4 which will 'compete' with some 4PSA product features. We'll have to see if Plesk did it right or not....

    garp, thx!

    i saw this allready...but:

    how to...
    if i have no mod_rewrite?
  13. jamesyeeoc

    jamesyeeoc Guest

    Hmm, I always thought that the Apache installed with Plesk (and most modern OS's) had mod_rewrite already compiled in, but I have also not used FreeBSD in years, nor Debian or Suse at all, so I am probably mistaken....

    Option 1: install mod_rewrite

    Option 2: create an index file and do a simple redirect from there to the new URL

    Option 3: possibly try using mod_alias directives

    From my modulelisting:

    Loaded Modules mod_security, mod_python, mod_webapp, mod_perl, mod_throttle, mod_php4, mod_frontpage, mod_ssl, mod_setenvif, mod_so, mod_unique_id, mod_usertrack, mod_headers, mod_expires, mod_cern_meta, mod_proxy, mod_digest, mod_auth_dbm, mod_auth_anon, mod_auth, mod_access, mod_rewrite, mod_alias, mod_userdir, mod_speling, mod_actions, mod_imap, mod_asis, mod_cgi, mod_dir, mod_autoindex, mod_include, mod_info, mod_status, mod_negotiation, mod_mime, mod_mime_magic, mod_log_config, mod_define, mod_env, mod_vhost_alias, http_core

    Only thing I've added manually is the mod_security - so I would say mod_rewrite is normally installed in the BSD version...

    yes, your are right and i'm sorry about my mistake!

    everything works fine actually. i've got only one last problem with relative paths:

    the forwarded domain can't show a flash, which ist linked like:

  16. jamesyeeoc

    jamesyeeoc Guest

    Now I don't remember exactly what you posted in the other thread about the flash file.

    So if you browse directly to the .swf file at the correct path does it play properly?


    Also due to the multiple thread posting and not knowing exactly what you put into the vhost.conf file for the rewrites, I am assuming a lot ...

    But as I posted in the other thread, you may have to put some additional rewrites or possibly try using the mod_alias directives.
  17. xtended

    xtended Guest

    okay: right now again and only in this thread:

    i've got a domain example2.com, which must point to example1.com/folder2/file.html

    this works fine with:

    RewriteEngine on
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(ww+\.)?example2\.com
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/Einbruchschutz/Schluessel/
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /Einbruchschutz/Schluessel/$1 [L]

    in the source of file.html the path to the images and flashes are relative:

    <td><img src="/images/Einbruchschutz/Fenster/Dach/2.jpg" width="194" height="177"></td>

    <embed src="/images/Flash/Start.swf"

    so, the images and the flash will not be shown.

    if i link absolute it works:

    <td><img src="http://www.example.com/images/Einbruchschutz/Fenster/Dach/2.jpg" width="194" height="177"></td>

    but there must be a solution without change customer's scripts, isn't it?

    thx for great support here!
