Question Subdomains with Apache 2.2.3 - vhost or rewrite rule?


Hello all!

I am seriously confused how to set up a subdomain correctly.
I browsed the web via google, browsed this forum and other resources.

Either I am dumb, blind, or just deeply confused.
At the moment my subs just don't seem to work :-/

What I did so far:
I created the subdomain (sub.domain.com) on the DNS server and pointed it to the IP (static) of my server (123.123.123.123). This is where the domain (domain.com) is located as well.

What I want:
  • The domain (domain.com) has its doc root within the file folder of /home/.srv/domain.com/pub.
  • The subdomain (sub.domain.com) shall have its doc root within the file folder of /home/.srv/domain.com/pub/sub.


Then I read about different ways of making subdomains:
  1. make a new namebased vhost
  2. use the RewriteEngine in vhost domain.com

What I tried with Option 1):
I created a new vhost for the subdomain with following configuration:
Code:
DocumentRoot "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/sub"
ServerName sub.domain.com
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t
 
<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/sub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
The domain.com vhost itself has following configuration:

Code:
DocumentRoot /home/.srv/domain.com/pub
ServerName domain.com
ServerAlias www.domain.com
 
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t
 
<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
 
<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/webdav">
# [...] I cut this out. I dont think this is of importance here
</Directory>
 
<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/stats">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Access"
order deny,allow
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /home/.srv/domain.com/admin4pub/.passwd
require valid-user
</Directory>

As I saw this does not work, I tried the rewrite stuff (Option 2):

I extended the domain.com vhost config with some rewrite rules:

Code:
DocumentRoot /home/.srv/domain.com/pub
ServerName domain.com
ServerAlias www.domain.com
 
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t
 
RewriteEngine on
RewriteOptions Inherit
RewriteLog "/var/log/httpd/rewrite.log"
RewriteLogLevel 9
 
#RewriteCond     %{HTTP_HOST}       ^www\.domain\.com$
RewriteCond     %{HTTP_HOST}       ^domain\.com$
RewriteRule     ^(.+)              http://www.domain.com   [NE,L,R]
 
RewriteCond     %{HTTP_HOST}       ^www\.sub(.+)\.domain\.com$
RewriteCond     %{HTTP_HOST}       ^sub\.domain\.com$
RewriteRule     ^(.+)              http://www.domain.com/sub [NE,L,R]
 

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
 

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/webdav">
# [...] I cut this out. I dont think this is of importance here
</Directory>
 
<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/stats">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Access"
order deny,allow
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /home/.srv/domain.com/admin4pub/.passwd
require valid-user
</Directory>

... but had no luck with this either.
It seems it doesnt matter, what I try - I always end at http://domain.com when I enter http://sub.domain.com into the webbrowser.

I know it should be that difficult to make subdomains, but I really cant figure out what I am doing wrong - is it so obvious, that I cant find it ?

Please help me

Thank you in advance!

there should be very little to do really. if you have the files all within the main directory, (which may or may not make much sense depending on who owns those subdomains and such...) then you wouldn't need a Directory directive as it'll already be covered. It's pretty confusing in your info as you've removed the <virtualhost .. > tags... (unless it's some config layout i'm not familiar with), but the vhost should need little more than

Code:
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /home/.srv/pub/sub
ServerName sub.domain.com
</VirtualHost>
and that should be it... nothing else should be needed at all, everythign should be inherited from the global configuration.

Question Thats weird

Hmm thats weird.
Well, if ya say my domain.com and sub.domain.com configs are correct, I gonna try switching the Default Server Config for a very short and plain one.

Right now it is the original default server one with only slight modifications.

Wish me luck

Question

Wow - now I am surprised.
When I move the vhost entry of the subdomain above the maindomain in the httpd.conf, then I get my subdomain - even if I enter http://domain.com.
When I move the vhost entry of the subdomain back below the maindomain in the httpd.conf, then I get the maindomain - even if I enter http://sub.domain.com.

Bah - That really makes me §$&$§.
After that I moved the doc root of the subdomain out of the maindomains doc root.
No change here either ...

May I again post my configs?
This time I include the global config as well (cleaned all the commented lines, so its easer to read)

I really hope somebody can help me here - It simply cant be that difficult to make a stupid sub. I must have overlooked something :/

### Section 2: '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.
#

#
# ServerAdmin: Your address, where problems with the server should be
# e-mailed.  This address appears on some server-generated pages, such
# as error documents.  e.g. admin@your-domain.com
#
ServerAdmin root@localhost

#
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
#
# If this is not set to valid DNS name for your host, server-generated
# redirections will not work.  See also the UseCanonicalName directive.
#
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
# You will have to access it by its address anyway, and this will make 
# redirections work in a sensible way.
#
#ServerName www.example.com:80

#
# UseCanonicalName: Determines how Apache constructs self-referencing 
# URLs and the SERVER_NAME and SERVER_PORT variables.
# When set "Off", Apache will use the Hostname and Port supplied

# ServerName directive.

Sorry for that long Section 2. I cut out 2 long parts, whcih definately dont have impact on this issue: imagestuff and autolanguage. These parts were marked with [...]


Finally the last code section of my httpd.conf:
Section 3: Virtual Hosts:
Code:



### Section 3: Virtual Hosts


#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#NameVirtualHost *:80
#
# NOTE: NameVirtualHost cannot be used without a port specifier 
# (e.g. :80) if mod_ssl is being used, due to the nature of the
# SSL protocol.
#

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#
#<VirtualHost *:80>
#    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
#    DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com
#    ServerName dummy-host.example.com
#    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common
#</VirtualHost>

#Just another vhost for someting else
<VirtualHost 300.300.300.300>  # In real life this is actual a valid IP-Adress
DocumentRoot /home/.srv/foo.com/pub
<Directory "/home/.srv/foo.com/pub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>


### Here the problem child vhost start:
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /home/.srv/domain.com/pub
ServerName domain.com
ServerAlias www.domain.com
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/webdav">
# WebDAV einschalten
Dav on
AuthType Basic
AuthName DAV
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /home/.srv/domain.com/admin4pub/.passwd
Require valid-user
# Alle Dateien als Plain Text zurückgegeben,
# auch Skripte
ForceType text/plain
CheckSpelling On
</Directory>

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/stats">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Access"
order deny,allow
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /home/.srv/domain.com/admin4pub/.passwd
require valid-user
</Directory>

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/masked">
AuthType Basic
AuthName "Restricted Access"
order deny,allow
AuthBasicProvider file
AuthUserFile /home/.srv/domain.com/admin4pub/.passwd
require valid-user
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

##MY lovely sub I wanna create:
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/sub"
ServerName sub.domain.com
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t

<Directory "/home/.srv/domain.com/pub/sub">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>


## This one is working as intended, just for the completeness
<VirtualHost 400.400.400.400> # In real life this is actual a valid IP-Adress
DocumentRoot "/home/.srv/bar/pub"
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.php
IndexIgnore .??* *~ *# HEADER* README* RCS CVS *,v *,t
<Directory "/home/.srv/bar/pub">
AddType application/x-httpd-php php php4 php3 html htm
allow from all
Options None
AllowOverride All
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Any hints, advice or wisdom? Please!
Thank you in advance!

Try the following code- (read more after code)

Code:
<Virtualhost sub.domain.com:80> #(or :* if u want all ports)
ServerName sub.domain.com:80 #(don't specify :80 if u want all ports)
ServerAdmin www@domain.com
DocumentRoot "/home/.srv/pub/sub"
AccessFileName .htaccess
<Directory "/home/.srv/pub/sub">
Order allow,deny
Allow from All
AllowOverride All #(set to None if u don't want overriding of options)
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>
But don't forget to create another VirtualHost for your top-level domain (domain.com) with the same options as specified in the Main Server Configuration (only directory options, etc. NO modules).

well again, no need to bother with a <Directory> directive at all as that should be implicit, and if you define the host as sub.domain.com:80 then apache needs to actually locally bind to that fqdn, which if you are on a local server behind an internet firewall you won't have. so replace that with *:80 then it doesn't matter what the ip of the server actually is at all.

also in your config you've not apparently enabled the namevirtualhost directive at the top there. not sure what the default really is, but certainly uncomment that line.

NameVirtualHost is required for domains other than your domains. For example my mini server is hosting two domains mine & my frnd's.

for my primary domain & subdomains, i don't need NameVirtualHost but i need it only for the primary domain of my frnd.

ex. my domain is domain.com

i won't need NameVirtualHost for sub.domain.com (or even domain.com)

while if my frnd's domain is domain.net

then i need one NameVirtualHost for domain.net only and not for sub.domain.net
