Web Site Preview - Subdomain Method


I just enabled site previews using:

System Settings -> Server Templates -> Default Settings -> Virtual Server Creation

Then I tested successfully by creating a new site "test" which I was able to preview with:


My question is this: how can I enable the same functionality for previously created sites? I don't immediately see how you made that magic work in order to duplicate it!

Maybe a nice command line option?

Thank in advance,

You could do this by creating an alias for existing domains.. this can be either done via the UI, or from the shell with a command like :

virtualmin create-domain --domain foo.myhosterdomain.com --alias foo.com --dir --web --dns --mail

Yeah, like Jamie said, all the "magic" that this function does is when creating a new domain, it will additionally create another domain, namely of type "alias", for the one you're creating, giving it a sub-domain name of an already existing and DNS-active domain.

Thanks much, that seems to work well.
