The easiest way to do it is to create a subdomain in the users control panel. Then in WHM park/stack the new domain to the subdomain you just created.

Domain to park on top of: domain2.domain.com
Domain to park:domain2.com

That's the only way I know to do it without manually editing the httpd.conf.

All mail sent to the stacked domain will go to the main account of the main domain. You can add fowards manually for the stacked domain just edit /etc/valiases/stackeddomain.com.

Or if you add a DNS1=parkeddomain.com to the /var/cpanel/users file you can then manage email for the parked domain in CPanel.

If you add DNS1=parkeddomain.com forwards wont work.
Its better if you add some rewrite lines to the exim.conf

Forwards work just fine... The user can even manage them along with mailing lists and catchalls in Cpanel based upon the parked domains. A very nice feature. Plus the utility scripts for updating the localdomains file and fixing permissions on the valiases files works if you add the DNS1 entry.

Strange Problem

I just tried out the DNS1=domain.com solution and now mail is being bounced back with this message:


This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

[email protected]
SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO:&[email protected]&:
host subdomain.test.com [1.2.3.4]: 550-Host mail.isp.net [6.7.8.9] is not permitted
550-to relay through mainserver.com.
550-Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes.
550-You may also have been rejected because your ip address
550-does not have a reverse DNS entry.
550 relaying to &[email protected]& prohibited by administrator

------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------

blahblah...


What should I do? Help??!!??

Which script is that for updating localdomains?

Thanks, I wasn't aware that script was also updating localdomains. Although it does make sense now. ;-)
