After version 1.5 child domains feature is available in CyberPanel. After version 1.6.4 stable we’ve launched dedicated launcher for child domains.
Why there is a need for Child Domain Launcher
Since most of you already know that rewrite rules with OpenLiteSpeed do not work as they work with LiteSpeed Enterprise/Apache.
Every domain must have their own .htaccess file and OpenLiteSpeed is explicitly told to load rules from the file, otherwise, the file is totally ignored. So if you have a master domain at:
/home/masterdomain.com/public_html its .htaccess file is located at
/home/masterdomain.com/public_html/.htaccess any .htaccess files in subdirectories do not work and they are ignored.
And so if you have a child-domain under the master domain with the path
/home/masterdomain.com/public_html/childdomain.com its rewrite rules will be ignored since OpenLiteSpeed has not been told to load rewrite rules from
To solve this problem we have a dedicated child domain launcher, where you can:
- View Access/Error logs.
- Edit virtual host configurations for child domain.
- Change PHP.
- Add/Delete Rewrite rules.
- Add SSL.
- Enable/Disable open_basedir protection.
