4 – Child Domains Launcher

You are here:
< Back

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 /home/masterdomain.com/public_html/childdomain.com/.htaccess.

 

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.

How to access launcher for Child Domain

Go to your Master Domain launcher which is located at:

https:<IP Address>:8090/websites/masterdomain.com

There you can manage your child domain configurations.
