Hello,

As an example
In the DNS record there is one domain that is called "doman.nu" and points to 80.55.122.22. doman.nu has a standard homepage.

There is also one "min.doman.nu" and points to the same IP 80.55.122.22. this one has a different homepage and are in another folder.

When I go to min.doman.nu I want apache to look up http://min.doman.nu/ and redirect me to another folder that is called test.

I thought that it was like this:

<VirtualHost 80.55.122.22>
ServerName min.doman.nu
ServerAlias min.doman.nu/test/
Redirect permanent / http://min.doman.nu/test
</VirtualHost>

What more do i have to do? its only one homepage on that webserver

Its an old FreeBSD with apache version 1.6 or something
do i have to activate virtual host in someway?

Thanks

You need a virtualhost for both domains
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName doman.nu
ServerAlias www.doman.nu
DocumentRoot /physical/path/to/doc/root
</VirtualHost>
 
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName min.doman.nu
RedirectMatch permanent ^/$ http://min.doman.nu/test/
DocumentRoot /physical/path/to/min/doc/root
</VirtualHost>
