I was hired to program some Drupal, but management forgot to tell me that I am the only person in the department who knows anything about computers, hence I am now the one and only webmaster. A noob with a root account.
I'm running RHEL 3.
I'm picking it up, but I have a somewhat urgent problem. I needed to create a wordpress blog (no problem). The problem is assigning a virtual address to it.
I found the httpd.conf file. It's a fairly large website and there are about 40 virtual hosts already registered and working. So I thought it would be easy. I cut and pasted a working virtual host setting and changed it to match the local address of the blog (which I tripled checked: it is correct. i can access it by appending to the server name and it looks like all the other blog addresses).
ErrorLog "|/usr/sbin/rotatelogs /opt/webaccess_logs/blog-vablog-error_log 500M"
CustomLog "|/usr/sbin/rotatelogs /opt/webaccess_logs/blog-vablog-access_log 500M" combined
I restarted Apache.
The address visualartsblog.foo.edu does not work. "DNS error - cannot find server".
I tried: /usr/sbin/httpd -S
At it was in the long list of virtual hosts:
port 80 namevhost visualartsblog.foo.edu (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:1369)
And many thanks.
