Virtual host config won't work


Hey all...

Ok, i'm trying to set up a virtual host for two sites. I have started trying to configure the file for the first one, and no matter what I do. I always get the test page. If you don't know what test page I'm talking about trying looking up my site and you will get it ... http://www.arizonahealthquotes.com ....ok, i'm gonna put my virtual config file down here cause I know that helps you guys. Also the network it set up that the server has an internal ip address of 192.168.1.20, and a public wan address of 63.226.61.140. Thanx guys..you always are a huge help.

#
# Virtual hosts
#

# Virtual host Default Virtual Host
<VirtualHost 63.226.61.140:80>

DocumentRoot /home/klinton/aba/
ServerName www.arizonahealthquotes.com
ServerAlias www.arizonahealthquotes.com








DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm index.shtml






LogLevel debug
HostNameLookups off




</VirtualHost>

thanx again

Ok, I just looked through my error files and found this too

[Thu Aug 07 16:08:15 2003] [error] [client 192.168.1.20] Directory index forbidden by rule: /var/www/html/

That happens and it gives me the test page I guess.

I don't know what it means, but I hope you guys can use it.

</VirtualHost>

# Virtual host www.arizonahealthquotes.com

what version of apache are you using? I Know there are some differences between 1.x and 2.x. I am using apache 2 and it has a seperate configuration file for virtual host in a directory called vhosts. I would look into the differences of named virtual hosts and addressed virtual hosts and think of making all of your hosts virtual and creating a dummy host for the non-virtual host this is what I did and have no problems.

I have a 2.x virtual host working..

I made it a seperate config from the httpd.conf..

put it in conf.d/virutalhost.conf


virtualhost.conf
Quote:
NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
ServerName www.crapper.com
</VirtualHost>
I use a seperate conf.. cause its easier... to manage...
and your httpd picks up *.conf in conf.d anyways :-P

That dosn't seem to work for me...when i use that script with my mods like

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/aba <----the folder I want it to go to
ServerName www.arizonahealthquotes.com
</VirtualHost>

if I put it by itself as a file called virtualhosts.conf or in the actual httpd.conf file....it just points arizonahealthquotes.com to my /var/www/html folder. So I tried putting the folder aba in my /var/www/html folder but it does the same thing. Thanx for the help guys. I feel like ripping my head off, but with your guys' help I'm sure you'll get it figured out.

Include conf/commonhttpd.conf


###
### IP Address/Port and Proxied configuration section
###
# The APACHEPROXIED setting can be set in /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd if you
# are using a proxy or accelerator, like the Apache-SGI or khttpd, so that
# the fast web server serves static content while Apache handles the
# cgi or php files

# Likewise, we can set apache as the server by default and send perl
# requests via ProxyPass to apache-mod_perl. It increases performance
# since the perl interpreter is only used for perl and the standard apache
# does all the html and image files, with a smaller footprint.
#
# If you install apache and apache-mod_perl, this is the default config.
# If you don't want two web servers to use perl, uninstall apache, and
# apache-mod_perl will not be proxied.

ok here is my Vhosts.conf file which is located in the vhosts directory directly below the httpd2.conf and is included in the httpd2.conf. Note that the ports are specified for each virtual hosts. it must be so.


Vhosts.conf:

I am not an expert on apache and this may be a technically incorrect configuration and may have security implications that I am unaware of but the most important thing for me is that it works. I believe if you don't specify the ports then it will default to port 443 which is https and will give you wacky certificate problems if you don't have a valid certificate like me.

hope this helps.

Wow!! hmmm...ok my verson of apache has no folder named vhosts in it's config, but also I misread your last post and put that file you told me to create in the conf instead of conf.d directory. It seems to recognize the file, but now all I get is the apache default test page.

I have never configured any other version of apache and I know from my reading that the virtual host configurations have changed from previous versions as it was stated in the documentation I read so I am not sure that I can really help you unless you go up to version 2.0.45. try adding your ip address to the named host and specifying the port and see if that works.

The default is to server web pages out of /var/www/html/ does this directory not exist? I would check the permissions and ownership of the directory and make sure there are no systems files or program files in the directory as you don't want apache to have permission to any folder that has any such files or programs. You should also make sure that the directory is owned by the person administering the site, ie you. Then make sure that you are in the apache group or the nobody group, I think apache is better, and allow group members to modify and read files in that directory. I had a similar problem with permissions when trying to run system calls and modify files and this solved the problem as long as the files were in the correct directory.

yea that directory exists, and if i have no virtual hosts running i can serve pages from it just fine....but i would like to serve pages from different directories so i can run two domains on one server, but i can't seem to do that.
