    I continually get asked to provide WebDirect at a root domain, server.mydomain.com, rather than server.mydomain.com/fmi/webd. Really any location other than /fmi/webd.

     

    This is a very popular request and it would be great to have this as a native feature in the FMS admin console. The native FMS admin console would require the entry of the host name and FMS would handle the Apache rewrite. There seems to be no documentation about how to do this with the FMS Apache install to allow for this to happen.

     

    Where would this rewrite end up on FMS? Does FMS Apache have mod_rewrite?

     

    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} example\.com [NC]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$

    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /fmi/webd#filename$1 [L]

     

    Directing to specific files seems possible and allowing for multiple entries would be a great implementation of this idea. The proper SSL certificate for securing multiple domains would need to be installed. As well the domains in use would need proper A records pointing to the server IP address.
