Is there an easier way to move/convert top level VS to Alias VS

OS type and version Ubuntu Linux 22.04.3
Webmin version 2.105
Usermin version 2.005
Virtualmin version 7.8.2
Theme version 21.09.5
Package updates All installed packages are up to date

I have a top-level VS that I want to “convert” to an alias of a different VS.

I have tried to do this by “disabling” the TL VS and then attempting to create it as an alias → this fails.

So is the only way to do this → to “delete” the VS (and loose everything) and then create the alias?

Or is there a simpler way?

BTW this is on a Nginx webserver and there are email accounts

Rather than disabling it, just rename it by putting a letter on the front of the domain (you can disabling after renaming it if you want) and then Virtualmin will not see an conflicts.

VM will not let you create an alias if the domain is already being used somewhere else.

Nice idea, But that does not seem possible. Going to Edit Virtual Server and clicking on the domain name just takes one to the existing website (so not possible to change it. so for example cannot be renamed (also I don’t want to destroy all the certs, data, users and email that are currently valid for this domain. It would be just the same as deletion and starting over as a new alias.
