apache + add a VirtualHost


Im trying to add a virtualhost for my webserver, and i add the following to httpd.conf:

<VirtualHost 217.xx.xxx.xxx>
Serveradmin webmaster@mysite.com
DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs/horde/imp
ServerName mail.mysite.com
ErrorLog /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
CustomLog /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log combined
</VirtualHost>

Then i try to restart the server:

mysite:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/horde# /etc/init.d/apache restart
/etc/init.d/apache restart: configuration broken, ignoring restart
/etc/init.d/apache restart: (run 'apachectl configtest' for details)
mysite:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/horde#

Something wrong here, so i run 'apachectl configtest' :

mysite:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/horde# apachectl configtest
Syntax OK
mysite:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/horde#

Nothing special in my logs either.

What am i missing in my httpd.conf, or cant i use subdomains? i dont need to talk to the people that i got the domain from ?

Thanks for helping

#
# ServerType is either inetd, or standalone. Inetd mode is only supported on
# Unix platforms.
#
ServerType standalone

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE! If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation
# (available at <URL:http://www.apache.org/docs/mod/core.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache"

#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
#
PidFile /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.pid

#
# ScoreBoardFile: File used to store internal server process information.
# Not all architectures require this. But if yours does (you'll know because
# this file will be created when you run Apache) then you *must* ensure that
# no two invocations of Apache share the same scoreboard file.
#
ScoreBoardFile /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.scoreboard

#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
Timeout 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive On

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 15

#
# Server-pool size regulation. Rather than making you guess how many
# server processes you need, Apache dynamically adapts to the load it
# sees --- that is, it tries to maintain enough server processes to
# handle the current load, plus a few spare servers to handle transient
# load spikes (e.g., multiple simultaneous requests from a single
# Netscape browser).
#
# It does this by periodically checking how many servers are waiting
# for a request. If there are fewer than MinSpareServers, it creates
# a new spare. If there are more than MaxSpareServers, some of the
# spares die off. The default values are probably OK for most sites.
#
MinSpareServers 5
MaxSpareServers 10

#
# Number of servers to start initially --- should be a reasonable ballpark
# figure.
#
StartServers 5

#
# Limit on total number of servers running, i.e., limit on the number
# of clients who can simultaneously connect --- if this limit is ever
# reached, clients will be LOCKED OUT, so it should NOT BE SET TOO LOW.
# It is intended mainly as a brake to keep a runaway server from taking
# the system with it as it spirals down...
#
MaxClients 150

#
# MaxRequestsPerChild: the number of requests each child process is
# allowed to process before the child dies. The child will exit so
# as to avoid problems after prolonged use when Apache (and maybe the
# libraries it uses) leak memory or other resources. On most systems, this
# isn't really needed, but a few (such as Solaris) do have notable leaks
# in the libraries. For these platforms, set to something like 10000
# or so; a setting of 0 means unlimited.
#
# NOTE: This value does not include keepalive requests after the initial
# request per connection. For example, if a child process handles
# an initial request and 10 subsequent "keptalive" requests, it
# would only count as 1 request towards this limit.
#
MaxRequestsPerChild 0

#
# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Please read the file http://httpd.apache.org/docs/dso.html for more
# details about the DSO mechanism and run `httpd -l' for the list of already
# built-in (statically linked and thus always available) modules in your httpd
# binary.
#
# Note: The order in which modules are loaded is important. Don't change
# the order below without expert advice.
#
# Example:
# LoadModule foo_module libexec/mod_foo.so
LoadModule php4_module libexec/libphp4.so

AddType application/x-httpd-php php

# PHP Syntax Coloring (recommended):
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source phps

#
# Port: The port to which the standalone server listens. For
# ports < 1023, you will need httpd to be run as root initially.
#
Port 80

#
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.
#
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# . On SCO (ODT 3) use "User nouser" and "Group nogroup".
# . On HPUX you may not be able to use shared memory as nobody, and the
# suggested workaround is to create a user www and use that user.
# NOTE that some kernels refuse to setgid(Group) or semctl(IPC_SET)
# when the value of (unsigned)Group is above 60000;
# don't use Group "#-1" on these systems!
#
User nobody
Group nogroup

#
# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed. This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents.
#
ServerAdmin webmaster@mysite.com

#
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.

# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.

Question https with SELinux

Hi all,
While I am trying to implement https on apache 2 (on RedHat Enterprise Linux 4) I use the following steps.
a. First backed up the /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key and /etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
b. Generate a key for self signed certificate as follows # make genkey and then # make testcert for generating the self signed certificate.
c. Next I restart http server with # service httpd restart and it shows that the private key not found.
========> Now, what is happening, while the same steps are right for RHEL3, and while I turn SELinux from the kernel parameter with enforcing=0, then this works fine. From the above error, I entered
SSLCertificateKeyFile "/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key" and
SSLCertificateFile "/etc/httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt" into /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file, but still it was unable to find the private key, i.e. while I restart the httpd server it again replied that the private key not found.
How to enable the https with SELinux?
