Existing Webmail not working in Plesk (7 posts)

    I purchased a Virtual Private Server. When I create a domain using Plesk [in CentOS], it automatically setups webmail.domain.com and http://ftp.domain.com

    Now, if I add the wildcard "*" dns entry, the webmail.domain.com doesn't work. It gets redirected to wpmu signup new blogs.

    I know, I know, I read on the internet to put the wildcard VirtualHost as the last entry and keep the existing subdomains at the top. But since this is a shared IP and Plesk automatically sets up, there is no mention of Webmail or ftp in http.conf file. So the only VirtualHost entry was my domain.com. So I don't know what to do now.

    Has anybody came across this when using Plesk in operating system CentOS?

    Is there way to tell wordpress NOT to redirect if its webmail.domain.com ? I mean .. may be in .htaccess to check the host is NOT webmail.domain.com?

    And what did your webhost's support say?

    (it's really more an issue how they set up the box)

    The actual extra entries may be off in another include file, especially if it's Apache2.

    They are not telling me anything about webmail setup. They told me to use a dedicated IP for WPMU installation, if I want webmail at the same time.

    I added the following to .htaccess, but still its redirecting to blog signup page
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^webmail.adadaa.org

    Here is the full

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^webmail.adadaa.org
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    "They told me to use a dedicated IP for WPMU installation, if I want webmail at the same time. "

    Then that's what you'll have to do. Or host the mail somewhere else. (totally doable - Goggle apps, for instance)
