    Yesterday, I added an account for a customer who wanted his new domain to point to his existing one.

    Then I tried to park newdomain.com on top of existingdomain.com - I couldn't do it because a DNS entry existed for newdomain.com, so I removed that and it worked fine.

    Then, the customer decided he wanted newdomain.com to point to existingdomain.com/folder

    So, what I did was:

    Unpark the domains
    Added a DNS zone (the main shared IP) to newdomain.com
    set-up redirects via the newdomain.com control panel.

    Now, when I type - http://www.newdomain.com it redirects perfectly to existingdomain.com/folder, but without the 'www', I'm just getting an Apache page.

    I hope that makes sense, and if anyone could offer some advice, I'd appreciate it.

    thanks

    Andrew

    Hmmm.

    I followed this up by deleting the domain from my master WHM, and deleting the DNS zone for the domain.

    The domain was then re-created via my own reseller account.

    All the DNS info looks the same as all the other domains, but now I can't access the domain with or without the 'www'. It just times out.

    However, I can see it via http://serverIP/~username

    Totally confused now.

    Now, I can access using www.domain.com, but not just domain.com (I get the Apache page).

    Does anyone know why?

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    domain.com is the addon? It's probably the httpd.conf entry.
