Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I use my RedHat 9 system to do webdesign. I access all the pages as "localhost/~user", "localhost/~anotheruser", etc. I want to use virtual hosts to access it as "site1.localhost", etc. I edited my httpd.conf to try and set them up, but it's not working. When I uncomment "NameVirtual Host *" and restart apache, I get the error "Mixing * ports and non * ports with a namevirtualhost address is not supported, proceeding with undefined results".
Putting <virtualhost>...</virtualhost> tags does nothing, presumably bcause of this error. Also, trying to access "http://localhost" resulats in a "host not found" error"
There are 2 options I think I need to adjust: UseCanonicalName [On/Off], and NameVirtualHost *, but I'm not entirely sure. Any help is appreciated.
I'm fairly new to this myself, however I was able to resolve that error on my own machine by adding a ':80' to the end of NameVirtualHost *(NameVirtualHost *:80). This line should enabled and not commented. The reason for this has something to do with SSL's inability to work with virtual hosts.
