I just installed redmine on my ubuntu server 10.04. Redmine is installed correctly because when I start it as standalone I can access it via

Redmine is located in /usr/share/redmine.

Now I want to access redmine from a subdomain, e.g. So I added a redmine file to the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and /etc/apache2/sites-avialable folder with following content:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        DocumentRoot /usr/share/redmine/public

        LogLevel warn
        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_error
        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_access combined

        <Directory /usr/share/redmine/public>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

Then I execute following commands

sudo a2ensite redmine
sudo service apache2 reload 

But my subdomains still shows the default empty plesk page. Any ideas what might be wrong?

Plesk needs to know that you have reconfigured the domain... try:

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng --reconfigure-vhost

then you want to restart [i.e. service apache2 stop ; service apache2 start] the apache service

check the docs for the full use of websrvmng

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng --help

sorry - I should have looked closer, your redmine app is listening on port 3000 & apache 80 .. you have been through… – Sean Kimball Aug 10 '11 at 14:29
