    Ok here we go....
    I' m using Plesk 7.5.4 on a dedicated fc2 machine.
    In the past I had to move all my clients (subdomains) from a crappy server to my current location.
    Most of my clients had programed their pages and links in the format www.myclient.mydomain.com.
    I Know that this is WRONG (I didn' t design the sites) but the old server never complained and everything worked OK. When I moved my clients to my current Plesk server the links stooped working so I had to come up with a solution. I could not rewrite all the html code and my clients had allready printed cards with the format www.myclient.mydomain.com.
    So I placed a .htaccess file on each subdomain like this...

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.myclient.mydomain.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://myclient.mydomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    and then I added for each client a CNAME DNS entry like this...

    *.myclient.mydomain.com --> myclient.mydomain.com

    Everything worked fine until a week ago when I updated Plesk to the latest 7.5.4 components.
    Now the rewrite rules don't work any more.
    ANY IDEAS???
