Setting up apache, a real pain in the A$$


Hi,

I am using Red hat linux server, and when ever I use the HTTP GUI tool to config apache, after I hit save and restart, I get an error saying it cannot load a module. However, then to fix this, i just write over the config file with the back up, then restart apache, and everything works fine.

Does anyone know why this might be happening, is it easier to config the appache.conf file manually, or does anyone know of a good reference where i can look into this more?

And lastly, I want to set up apache to host 3 websites with one IP address. Can some please walk me through this. All the steps that are required to make this work.

Thanks,

James

you want to read about virtual hosts
go to the apache website and there are walk throughs there in the documentation

I use the modules
you have to write a module for each of the 3 websites and place it in the module directory and then change the main config file to enable the module.

It took me a couple hours to sort it out, but once I was done it worked perfectly

I use suse and tried to do it with Yast, but encounterd problems so manually setting it up is easier.


place the scripts for a virtual host in the vhosts.d folder, one script for each site.

here is an example

Code:
<VirtualHost *:80>
 ServerAdmin YOU@yahoo.com
 ServerName YOURSITE.com
 ServerAlias www.YOURSITE.com *.YOURSITE.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.
 DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs/YOURSITE.com
 DirectoryIndex portal.php
    # if not specified, the global error log is used
    #ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
    #CustomLog /var/log/apache2/dummy-host.example.com-access_log combined

    # don't loose time with IP address lookups
 HostnameLookups Off

    # needed for named virtual hosts
 UseCanonicalName On

    # configures the footer on server-generated documents
 ServerSignature On


    # Optionally, include *.conf files from /etc/apache2/conf.d/
    #
    # For example, to allow execution of PHP scripts:
    #
    # Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/mod_php4.conf
    #
    # or, to include all configuration snippets added by packages:
    # Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/*.conf


    # ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
    # ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
    # documents in the realname directory are treated as applications and
    # run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the client.
    # The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directives as to
    # Alias.
    #
 ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/srv/www/cgi-bin/"

    # "/srv/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
    # CGI directory exists, if you have one, and where ScriptAlias points to.
    #
 <Directory "/srv/www/cgi-bin">
  AllowOverride None
  Options +ExecCGI -Includes
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
 </Directory>


    # UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home
    # directory if a ~user request is received.
    #
    # To disable it, simply remove userdir from the list of modules in APACHE_MODULES
    # in /etc/sysconfig/apache2.
    #
 <IfModule mod_userdir.c>
        	# Note that the name of the user directory ("public_html") cannot simply be
	# changed here, since it is a compile time setting. The apache package
	# would have to be rebuilt. You could work around by deleting
	# /usr/sbin/suexec, but then all scripts from the directories would be
	# executed with the UID of the webserver.
UserDir public_html
        	# The actual configuration of the directory is in
	# /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf.
Include /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf
 </IfModule>


    #
    # This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
    #
 <Directory "/srv/www/htdocs/YOURSITE.com">
            
	#
	# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
	# or any combination of:
	#   Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
	#
	# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
	# doesn't give it to you.
	#
	# The Options directive is both complicated and important.  Please see
	# http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#options
	# for more information.
	#
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
            
	#
	# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
	# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
	#   Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
	#
AllowOverride None
            
	#
	# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
	#
Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
 </Directory>
</VirtualHost>
THat file goes in the VHOST folder.

now go to the httpconf.d file and add
Code:
Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf
just replace YOURSITE with your domain name.

here is my file

Code:
#
# /etc/apache2/httpd.conf 
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/> for detailed information about
# the directives.

# Based upon the default apache configuration file that ships with apache,
# which is based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob
# McCool. This file was knocked together by Peter Poeml <poeml+apache@suse.de>.

# If possible, avoid changes to this file. It does mainly contain Include
# statements and global settings that can/should be overridden in the
# configuration of your virtual hosts.

### 'Main' server configuration #############################################
#
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition.  These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
#
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.
#
Include /etc/apache2/default-server.conf
# SQL-Ledger
Include /etc/apache2/sql-ledger-httpd.conf
Include /etc/apache2/mod_perl.conf
# Another way to include your own files
#
# The file below is generated from /etc/sysconfig/apache2,
# include arbitrary files as named in APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES and
# APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_DIRS
Include /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/include.conf


### Virtual server configuration ############################################
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.
#
Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf



# Note: instead of adding your own configuration here, consider 
#       adding it in your own file (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local)
#       putting its name into APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES in 
#       /etc/sysconfig/apache2 -- this will make system updates 
#       easier :)

### 'Main' server configuration #############################################
#
# The directives in this section set up the values used by the 'main'
# server, which responds to any requests that aren't handled by a
# <VirtualHost> definition.  These values also provide defaults for
# any <VirtualHost> containers you may define later in the file.
#
# All of these directives may appear inside <VirtualHost> containers,
# in which case these default settings will be overridden for the
# virtual host being defined.
#
Include /etc/apache2/default-server.conf
# SQL-Ledger
Include /etc/apache2/sql-ledger-httpd.conf
Include /etc/apache2/mod_perl.conf
# Another way to include your own files
#
# The file below is generated from /etc/sysconfig/apache2,
# include arbitrary files as named in APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES and
# APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_DIRS
Include /etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/include.conf


### Virtual server configuration ############################################
#
# VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
#
# Please see the documentation at
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/>
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
#
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
# configuration.
#
Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf



# Note: instead of adding your own configuration here, consider 
#       adding it in your own file (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local)
#       putting its name into APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES in 
#       /etc/sysconfig/apache2 -- this will make system updates 
#       easier :)

Right on, I think i see what you are saying. When i get to work monday, I am going to give that a shot. I am still confused about the modules, but I'll post here again monday when i am all screwed up again.

Thanks, for all you help, good stuff.

You know, that is the million dollar question. I made a backup of my httpd.conf file, then i tried to configure via the Gui httpd tool, and after I hit restart, well... It doesnt start again.

Not that this is a real server, Im basically trying to learn here. But I cant figure out why httpd wont start since I replaced the config file with the default one.

If you have time and would like to remote in, just let me know, and I can email you the ip address and the root password.

Thanks,

Here is another question to which I cant seem to get working. How do I enable webdav publishing on my server. I've looked at all the documents on apache's website, but nothing seems to work.

I think tyring to use that GUI tool is a lost cause, I know how to configure everything via the httpd.conf file, that seems the easiest and most straighforward.

Do you know anything about webdav?

You may also be able to run:

/etc/init.d/httpd configtest

to see where your httpd.conf file is broken.

Well, everything is running, website wise. The only thing I cant figure out is how to enable the webdav so I can update my site.
