Hi,

I followed that exact TID on my GroupWise 2014 system and it worked perfectly.

Did you restart tomcat and apache after making the changes?

Please confirm what OS version/support pack you are running.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Thanks for your reply

Well I Also followed the TID ,,,, But no I don't work , And yes I'v restarted all .... Even the server

It has to do with "Defaultpage" since i Get to the stock OES "Novell® Open Enterprise Server 11 SP2" page

Begining to suspect /srv/www/novell/welcome-novell/index.html.en is the one tha shows... How in h--l Do get it to point to xxxx.com/gw/webacc

I would suggest you to create a cname in dns (like webmail.domain.com that points to serveraddress.domain.com), then you create a apache vhost for that address and add the index.html (<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=https://webmail.domain.com/gw/webacc" />) from the TID in the documents root folder you specify for the vhost.

Hi,

I suspect that you are editing the wrong file. It should simple be index.html no extension after it. Remember, as per the tid, if the file doesn't exist in the location specified you have to create it.

Let us know how it goes.

index.html is the one you want to edit and if it doesn't exist, make a
copy from that index.html.en (assuming you want it in English)

Re: GW2014 GroupWise WebAccess URL

Hi,

Further to what I've said above....Create or Modify /srv/www/htdocs/index.html

I believe that /srv/www/novell/welcome-novell/ is the wrong path - just a suggestion.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers,

So, from my perspective, it is much better to do this as an Apache rewrite than
redirecting from the index file. What if someone just goes to
http://yourserver.com/gw/webacc - that will not redirect to SSL if you are
redirecting only from the index.html.

I usually do this:
