Thread: How do third level domains work?

    Question How do third level domains work?

    I want to do this but it keeps saying invalid even though the folder exists along with the files.


    /index.html is an invalid destination

    Did you try to set as target your folder?

    yes but says this
    A index.php external file is already present, cannot go on, if you rename or remove it, check than scripts are still active

    The AlterVista toolo manages subdomains through index.php.

    If this file already exists, there will be that message you indicated: to use the AlterVista tool there must be no index file in the root.

    If you still want to use subdomains having a homepage (index) in the main root, you have to act "manually" by setting the .htaccess appropriately.

    For example, you can use this .htaccess:

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =subdomain.hewan.altervista.org
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !subdomain_folder/
    RewriteRule (.*) /subdomain/$1 [L]

    Is there anything else in the .htaccess file? Did you replace all data correctly? Does the "/ subdomain /" folder exist?

    Bye!

    .htaccess code
    HTML Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =archives.hewan.altervista.org
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/archives
    RewriteRule (.*) /archives$1 [L]

    As mentioned before, you can't use the altervista panel because you have already an index.php file in root.

    Code:
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} =archives.hewan.altervista.org
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/archives
    RewriteRule (.*) /archives$1 [L]
    Ok, but you have to put this code in the main .htaccess file (not in /archives/.htaccess, but in /.htaccess).

    Bye!

    You don't have to use the altervista "manager your domains" because you have an index in the root.

    Now i see a redirect from http://archives.hewan.altervista.org/ to http://archives.hewan.altervista.org/archives/
    What code you used?

    Bye!
