1. Create a subdomain z-WILDCARD in Plesk – of course in the admin section of the right domain.
Why do we need this name? ’cause this entry should be the last entry in the list of subdomains, otherwise this
“trick” will not work. So if you have a domain as e.g. zabalula , than you should maybe name the subdomain zzzz-WILDCARD
or similar.
2. Add special configuration (catchall for all subdomains) to the vhosts.conf file of this subdomain.
Normally it’s located in /srv/www/vhosts/domain.com/subdomains/z-WILDCARD/conf/vhosts.conf. You have to create it
– normally you need the root user to do this. Copy the following content into the file:
ServerAlias *.domain.com
3. Apply the new configuration – recreate the Apache configuration. You have to run the tool websrvmng which is a
Plesk tool that manages and creates the webserver configuration. Execute the following as root user.
/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=domain.com
4. Finally – restart Apache to load the new configuration, also as root.
apache2ctl restart
