apache2 virtual hosting not resolving correctly
I am running Ubuntu 8.04 as a server and this question specifically deals with apache2 (I think). I have 6 domains resolving to this server and I have virtual hosting set up and it works great. However, there are some small problems that I would like to fix and my attempts have been futile.
First, it I am attempting to reach site1 and type www.site1.com it works fine. If I type site1.com (with out the www) it goes to a generic "under construction" page (try nobledivers.com to see what I mean). This happens on all the sites. I tried making another entry in the sites-enable folder and calling the ServerName with out the www and the ServerAlias with the www (this is the opposite the other entry). Also, I pinged the site both ways and the ip address is correct so it isn't a DNS problem.
Second, if I type wow.nobledivers.com (which doesn't exist so should be redirected to the original site) it is redirected to a completely different site on the server. This one I am lost on, but again, this is a server problem and not a DNS problem (as far as I can tell).
Any help would be great. Thank you.
think i see why you get 'under construction' for nobledrivers.com but it works for www.nobledrivers.com looks like it IS a dns issue...
unless you have decided to do port 80 redirect with a router, your catchall address for nobledrivers.com goes to a different machine than www.nobledrivers.com - shown in the ping output below.
hope that helps.
$ ping nobledivers.com
PING nobledivers.com (220.127.116.11): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=0 ttl=112 time=102.134 ms
$ ping www.nobledivers.com
PING www.nobledivers.com (22.214.171.124): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=0 ttl=48 time=101.920 ms
i use two <virtualHost> entries
I went to the DNS and found that the @ symbol represents nothing in the prefix. So I changed that to resolve to the correct address. However, I think the email will be going to the wrong place (email and web hosting are done on different servers). So, does anyone know what the DNS needs as a prefix to forward the email to the correct IP? Something like mail.site.com or smtp.site.com?
Thanks for the help
You need an MX record http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...bind-zone.html
MX record will tell email servers from elsewhere (when trying to complete a request to firstname.lastname@example.org) how to find your email server.
you may also need mail.yourdomain.com so to configure your own email client with the right address for getting/sending email.
