Setting up webmail.domain.com as default for new domains.Last Modified: Sep 18, 2019, 4:49 pm
1) We'll need to add a webmail.* VirtualHost to each domain.  We can make use of a feature that let's us globally specify CUSTOM# tokens, without altering the original templates.
Create the file

/usr/local/directadmin/data/templates/custom/virtual_host2.conf.CUSTOM.4.post

and add the code

</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost |IP|:|PORT_80| |MULTI_IP|>
   ServerName webmail.|DOMAIN|
   ServerAdmin |ADMIN|
   DocumentRoot /var/www/html/roundcube
   CustomLog /var/log/httpd/domains/|DOMAIN|.bytes bytes
   CustomLog /var/log/httpd/domains/|DOMAIN|.log combined
   ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/domains/|DOMAIN|.error.log
   <IfModule !mod_ruid2.c>
       SuexecUserGroup webapps webapps
   </IfModule>

taking note that we *start* the code with the closing </VirtualHost> because the CUSTOM4 token is before the trailing VH in the virtual_host2.conf template.

The above is for port http:80, but similar code can be used in virtual_host2_secure.conf.CUSTOM.4.post if you want it for https on the domain, you'd just need to add the lines after the opening <VH>:

       SSLEngine on
       SSLCertificateFile |CERT|
       SSLCertificateKeyFile |KEY|
       |CAROOT|



2) Then run

echo "action=rewrite&value=httpd" >> /usr/local/directadmin/data/task.queue
/usr/local/directadmin/dataskq d

to rewrite the httpd.conf files.


3) You'll also need to setup the dns portition.

cd /usr/local/directadmin/data/templates
cp dns_a.conf custom
cd custom
echo "webmail=|IP|" >> dns_a.conf

This will setup the webmail A record for new dns zones.  For existing dns zones, you'll have to manually add the webmail A record to point to the domains IP.
