Unhappy Virtual hosts both point to same site? help


I am new to linux and have tried to set up 2 sites on the same apache2.2.4 server using virtual hosts

see section of conf file below.

however although i have 2 seperate directories and index.html files both when browsed from windows machine show same site.

What have i done wrong.

i have used dyndns to sort out my dynamicdns and the bt home hub forwards http to linux box

Thanks in advance and please remember this is all new to me so easy steps would be best.

namevirtualhost *

<virtualhost *>
servername www.bluebellwoods-developments.co.uk
serveradmin cobrien@btinternet.com
documentroot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/bluebell"

ErrorLog logs/error_log

</VirtualHost>
<virtualhost *>
servername www.globalbedding.co.uk
serveradmin cobrien@btinternet.com
documentroot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/global"
ErrorLog logs/error_log

</VirtualHost>

I had a similar issue as discussed in this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=543645

I don't know much about this stuff, but maybe the tips in there will help. If the first of your VirtualHosts dominates (i.e. is the site that both addresses seem to resolve to), then you may have had the same issue as me. If so, it is a simple syntax fix.

Good luck.

Here's how I do it:

if it doesn't already exist, create a folder for your vhosts configs in /etc/apache

in httpd.conf, add a line like this:

Include /etc/apache/vhosts/*.conf

create a new vhosts conf file for each system. I have included 2 here:

# host1.company.conf

NameVirtualHost host1.company.com.com:80

<VirtualHost host1.company.com:80>
ServerName host1.company.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/htdocs/host1/
</VirtualHost>

# host2.company.conf

NameVirtualHost host2.company.com.com:80

<VirtualHost host2.company.com:80>
ServerName host2.company.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/htdocs/host2/
</VirtualHost>

test this with apachectl configtest. It will probably give errors about namevirtualhosts, but they can usually be ignored.

If there are no other major errors, start apache.

In httpd.conf, what does your "NameVirtualHost" line look like?

I can generate that error with my server if I use:
Code:
NameVirutalHost *
But don't get an error with
Code:
NameVirtualHost *:80
Try the latter and restart httpd. I think that will eliminate the error and (hopefully) get the results you want...

See my httpd.conf
#
# This is the main Apache HTTP server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2> for detailed information.
# In particular, see
# <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/directives.html>
# for a discussion of each configuration directive.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do. They're here only as hints or reminders. If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path. If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "logs/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/usr/local/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/usr/local/apache2/logs/foo.log".

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# Do not add a slash at the end of the directory path. If you point
# ServerRoot at a non-local disk, be sure to point the LockFile directive
# at a local disk. If you wish to share the same ServerRoot for multiple
# httpd daemons, you will need to change at least LockFile and PidFile.
#
ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache2"

#
# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses.
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

#
# Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
#
# To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
# have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
# directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
# Statically compiled modules (those listed by `httpd -l') do not need
# to be loaded here.
#
# Example:
# LoadModule foo_module modules/mod_foo.so
#

<IfModule !mpm_netware_module>
#
# If you wish httpd to run as a different user or group, you must run
# httpd as root initially and it will switch.
#
# User/Group: The name (or #number) of the user/group to run httpd as.
# It is usually good practice to create a dedicated user and group for
# running httpd, as with most system services.

# '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 webmaster@bluebellwoods-developments.co.uk

#
# 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 your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.

<IfModule alias_module>
#
# Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to
# exist in your server's namespace, but do not anymore. The client
# will make a new request for the document at its new location.
# Example:
# Redirect permanent /foo http://www.example.com/bar

#
# Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
# access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
# Example:
# Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
#
# If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL. You will also likely
# need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
# the filesystem path.

#
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the target 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

# or images, you may want to use "application/octet-stream" instead to
# keep browsers from trying to display binary files as though they are

# TypesConfig points to the file containing the list of mappings from

#
# AddType allows you to add to or override the MIME configuration
# file specified in TypesConfig for specific file types.
#
#AddType application/x-gzip .tgz
#
# AddEncoding allows you to have certain browsers uncompress
# information on the fly. Note: Not all browsers support this.
#
#AddEncoding x-compress .Z
#AddEncoding x-gzip .gz .tgz
#
# If the AddEncoding directives above are commented-out, then you
# probably should define those extensions to indicate media types:
#
AddType application/x-compress .Z
AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz

#
# AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to "handlers":
# actions unrelated to filetype. These can be either built into the server
# or added with the Action directive (see below)
#
# To use CGI scripts outside of ScriptAliased directories:
# (You will also need to add "ExecCGI" to the "Options" directive.)
#
#AddHandler cgi-script .cgi

# For type maps (negotiated resources):
#AddHandler type-map var

#
# Filters allow you to process content before it is sent to the client.

# To parse .shtml files for server-side includes (SSI):
# (You will also need to add "Includes" to the "Options" directive.)
#
#AddType text/html .shtml
#AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml

#
# The mod_mime_magic module allows the server to use various hints from the
# contents of the file itself to determine its type. The MIMEMagicFile
# directive tells the module where the hint definitions are located.

#
# Customizable error responses come in three flavors:

#ErrorDocument 404 "/cgi-bin/missing_handler.pl"
#ErrorDocument 402 http://www.example.com/subscription_info.html

# EnableMMAP and EnableSendfile: On systems that support it,

in your httpd.conf, comment out the line

namevirtualhost *:80

You include that line in your bluebell.conf and global.conf, so it should not
appear in httpd.conf.

sorry for the delay in response.
