  • Pointer Domains

    I'm having an issue with pointer domains. I'm getting the message

    Error: Both domains already exist, unable to create alias

    When I try to create on on an account. I haven't tried any other accounts yet. Any ideas?

    This occurred after I deleted a siteworx account whith them in and then created a new one. {I'd messed some things up in configuration and fitured the easiest way to fix it was to start over.}

    I've tried restarting http and some of the other services and even rebooting the server. Any suggestions?

    Hi Tim,

    We're aware of this bug, and it will be fixed in the next release. Here's the workaround:

    1) Delete the SiteWorx account in question.

    2) Log in to your server as root, and for each of the pointer domains that were set up to point to the SiteWorx account that was deleted, execute this command at the shell:
    For example, if you had the SiteWorx account, and and were set up to point to, execute these commands as root:

    Then you can re-create the SiteWorx account, and this problem won't happen.

        Is this the same problem when getting the error "Neither '' or '' exist, unable to create alias."? I was trying to add a pointer to the Siteworx account. I had already used the vdeldomain for vpopmail since I won't be hosting email for this account. Trying to figure out why I can't add a pointer to it now.

          The email functionality is needed in order to add a pointer domain. You'll need to:

          ~vpopmail/bin/vadddomain test

          and then add the pointer domain and then vdeldomain it again
