    /webmail for all domains

    I have apache installed on Debian 7 and would like webmail in all areas of my VPS, when a field visit www.yourdomain.com/webmail goes to the webmail software that is installed in /var/www/webmail/
    How can I do this? I have to put in the vhost file for each domain?

    Re: /webmail for all domains

    There are a variety of methods for this if you are using Apache. You can add an "alias" directive to each domain that points to the common mailserver software:

    Code:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName www.domain1.name
    Alias /webmail /var/www/webmail
    [stuff]
    </VirtualHost>
    
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName www.domain2.name
    Alias /webmail /var/www/webmail
    [stuff]
    </VirtualHost>
    Handling outbound addressing in this setting can be tricky. In SquirrelMail, for instance, you'll need to use its personalization features so each person sends mail with the proper user@domain. Without this you can end up with everyone having "From: user@yourdomain.com" addresses rather than "From: user@herdomain.com".

    If you have some experience with PHP (I'm guessing that is what the webmail software is written in), you could design a custom login page where the person enters user@domain.name and a password. You would then parse the domain from the login address and proceed accordingly.

    Re: /webmail for all domains

    Was putting a file in the directory webmail.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/


    With the following content:


    Alias ​​/webmail /var/www/webmail/


    <Directory "/var/www/webmail/">
    Options Indexes FollowSimlinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow, deny
    Allow from all
    AddDefaultCharset off
    </ Directory>


    This recognizes the way I want, but this appears "No input file specified.".


    I'm doing it right? How can I fix this error?

    Re: /webmail for all domains

    FollowSymLinks is misspelled.

    Also your first stop in debugging is to check /var/log/apache2/error.log.
