    On server I recently had to have the server formatted and OS reinstalled due to a hacker attack.

    I restored several sites through WHM after the server was cleanly installed. The backups were from before the server was compromised.

    The other day my wife tried going to http://mail.herdomain.com thinking that this would get her to her webmail for her site however it instead resolved to and displayed another domain on the server while still displaying http://mail.herdomain.com as the address.

    I have tested with several other domains on the sever typing in http://mail.domain.com and all are displaying the same site and not their own.

    So I have checked all the DNS records through WHM and don't see anything that should be causing this behavior and have run the DNS cleanup script as well with no improvement.


    Thanks for the time.

    I've searched for this problem using several different search phrases and didn't find a prior post on this so my apologies if it's already been posted and answered.

    I had something similar. On mine it went to the default site. It was b/c the domain mail.whatever.com was mapped to that ip on my nameserver, but there wasn't an entry in httpd.conf for it.
