Groupwise webaccess URL resolves to default apache page instead of Webmail

Posted on 2007-07-30

I just upgraded my Novell Mail server to netware 6.5 sp6.  Groupwise has also been upgraded to sp6.  I am having a strange issue with Apache 2 though.  The old URL for our Groupwise Webaccess doesn't resolve anymore.  Instead it just takes you to the default apache page.  

old URL that won't resolve is -

URL that will resolve to correct page from another link from our main site is -

I have looked at httpd.conf and things look ok in terms of IP's and what's it's listening for.  Here is a snip from file:

# NetWare iManager Config
Include sys:/tomcat/4/conf/nps-Apache.conf
##### Begin Novell eGuide configuration #####
include "SYS:/tomcat/4/webapps/eGuide/WEB-INF/eGuide-apache.conf"
##### End Novell eGuide configuration #####
##### Begin Novell GroupWise WebAccess configuration #####
include "sys:Apache2/conf/GWApache2.conf"
##### End Novell GroupWise WebAccess configuration #####
SecureListen "WEBMAIL 2007"
#SecureListen "IP AG 128\.174\.100\.34"
SecureListen "SSL CertificateDNS"

any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

    So what's your documentroot?
    And do you have any virtual servers that you use? (Or should be using?)

    Also, I would take a close look at sys:Apache2/conf/GWApache2.conf This should contain the settings fot Groupwise WebAccess.
