    Default [SOLVED] How to Change Documents and Briefcase URL?

    My Zimbra server server's canonical name is aegir.thatonedomain.com, and webmail is a cname.

    I'd prefer to access the web interface by hitting https://webmail.thatonedomain.com, and that works fine - so long as I don't try to access my briefcase or any of my documents. When I do that, the host name in the URL changes to aegir. I can still connect, obviously, but my SSL cert is for "webmail", and my browser throws a cert error.

    Is there an easy way to make the host name in the URL "stick" to 'webmail'?

    On a "normal" Apache server, I'd make this work with a mod_rewrite rule and / or by way of creating a <VirtualHost> configuration, but I'm afraid to play too much with the default Zimbra config.

    The server uses zimbraPublicServiceHostname to generate REST URLs, ie: briefcase, document, calendar sharing etc.

    Say it's generating a URL like http:// server.domain.com and you'd rather have it http:// webmail.domain.com:
    zmprov md domain.com zimbraPublicServiceHostname webmail.domain.com
    (As long as 'webmail' has a proper DNS entry to point at 'server' both internally and externally.)

    In 5.0.9+ REST URL's are now composed of 3 attributes: zimbraPublicService[Protocol + Hostname + Port] to avoid dependency on zimbraServer objects. 'Protocal' & 'Port' are automatically configured on upgrade if you have 'Hostname' set / you can just set 'Hostname' and run fine if you should forget to set 'Protocol' & 'Port' to http(s) & 80/443 respectively. (And we only expose 'hostname' in the Admin console domains tab.)

    To minimize browser warnings, might add subjectAltNames if it applies to you: Administration Console and CLI Certificate Tools - Zimbra :: Wiki

    If you have multiple domains I assume you've already added 'webmail' as a virtual host to make login easier (so you don't always have to append @domain.com) if you haven't:
    zmprov md domain.com zimbraVirtualHostname webmail.domain.com

    I did, actually, but I didn't find anything useful in the results. It's all a matter of constructing the right search string, and apparently, I fail. I apologize, and thanks for the reminder that I'm a failure. I was having a pretty good day, and needed to be put in my place.

    And thanks to mmorse, as well, for hooking me up with what I needed.

    Have a good weekend, guys.

    'briefcase url" gives you some answers, no need to take it that way.

    Marking as solved.
