multiple website hosting


I have put in 2 test domains on my RH9 server. i have made the virtual host settings in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf according to 2 articles that i pulled off the web and my RH9 bible. my config of

NameVirtualHost *

<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /var/www/sitename1.net
ServerName www.sitename1.net
ServerAdmin dmatney@sitename1.net
ErrorLog logs/sitename1.net.log
</virtualhost>

and then the same paragraph for site 2 with all the correct settings
when i put the actual IP address after the virtualhost tag

<VirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx>

i get "ERROR 400".

and the same thing when i use <VirtualHost *>

Does anyone have any suggestions for this? I would greatly appreciate it.

cdm

make the following changes to match your configuration:

Code:
NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@one.com
        DocumentRoot /website/one/location
        ServerName server.one.com
        ErrorLog logs/server.one.com-error_log
        CustomLog logs/server.one.com-access_log common
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@one.com
        DocumentRoot /website/two/location
        ServerName server.two.com
        ErrorLog logs/server.two.com-error_log
        CustomLog logs/server.two.com-access_log common
</VirtualHost>

also... be sure to check your DNS settings to make sure they are setup correctly.

hope i could help!!!!

you are local. that is different!
thanks for the help. i have been trying to work on this all day. my httpd.conf file looks really messed up after using the graphical tool. i backed up my httpd.conf file but, it was already messed up. any ideas on getting a new httpd.conf file without blowing away all that i have?

i am not going to worry much on the dns for now. i think that it is ok. whenever i service start httpd, that is where i get the errors.

[root@abs05 conf]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
Starting httpd: [Mon Dec 20 15:24:23 2004] [warn] VirtualHost www.micromgrs.net:80 overlaps with VirtualHost www.abshr.net:80, the first has precedence, perhaps you need a NameVirtualHost directive
[FAILED]

here is what the httpd.conf looks like (not sure where the first virtual host came from)

<VirtualHost *>
ServerSignature email
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm index.shtml
LogLevel warn
HostNameLookups off
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost www.micromgrs.net:80>
ServerAdmin dmatney@micromgrs.net
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/micromgrs
ServerName www.micromgrs.net
ErrorLog /var/log/micromgrs.log
</virtualHost>

<VirtualHost www.abshr.net:80>
ServerAdmin dmatney@abshr.net
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/micromgrs
ServerName www.abshr.net
ErrorLog /var/log/abshr.log
</VirtualHost>

the NameVirtualServer * does not appear and does not change the startup status with or without it.

check that - i found the problem. the directory for abshr and micromgrs are the same. once i got that fixed, i tried to restart and it just says that the service failed. no reason this time.
