Virtual Host Setup


I am having a problem setting up my Virtual Hosts.

I have a linux server w/ RedHat9 and Webmin installed.

My first question is, what's the difference between Virtual Servers (listed in webmin) and Virtual Hosts (httpd conf)?

My problem: i have my server IP set to the default host, and i want to add a subdomain as a virtual host for now. My problem is when i try adding the virtual host for the subdomain, it changes both the virtual host and the default one.

The subdomain works correctly when i add the Virtual Host for it, but it also changes the IP address to the same page.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

what distro are you using?
in mdk there is a seperate vhosts file. in deb, and i believe rh, it's at the end of the httpd. file. drop your config here and we'll look at it.

NameVirtualHost 999.99.999.999

<VirtualHost _default_>
DocumentRoot /home/site1/public_html
ServerName site1.domain.com
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost _default_>
DocumentRoot /home/site2/public_html
ServerName site2.domain.com
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 999.99.999.999>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html
ServerName 999.99.999.999
</VirtualHost>

you can try
Code:
httpd -S
to find out whether apache has really liked your vhost config.

sorry about the last question. very tired.

what i would do is to get rid of the default and put the ip in it's place. the ip of the server. do a ifconfig to see what ip your server is running off of and then forward that ip:80 to your server. for the 99.999.99.999 domain, i would put the server address in that spot and just have it's name, servername, 99.999.99.999. that way all of your vhosts are running off of the same ip and the only thing that controls what is shown is the url that is typed in. that is which ever server you want to look at.

if you are still having lots of troubles with it. check here for more information on your config and testing of the config files.

virtual server- Virtual server is a highly scalable and highly available server built on a cluster of real servers.
virtual host- The term Virtual Host refers to the practice of maintaining more than one server on one machine, as differentiated by their apparent hostname.
