Hey, I am running red hat 9...and I am trying to set up my virtual host. I set it up at a ip based host and I want the root document directory to be /var/www/slsl ..... but the root document directory is /var/www/html ..... I have changed it by editing the virtual host, but it doesn't seem to work and by default goes to /var/www/html everytime. What I am doing wrong?
Open up /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and change the section that looks like this:
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
So if you want the document root to be /var/www/html/slsl it would be:
Ok...I will try that, but I have a question. I want to be able to host two websites off of the same machine. I thought that was done by setting up virtual servers. I guess I am lost in that, if I can only go to one folder when a request comes into the machine, then how do I set up virtual hosts?...anyway...I'm sure it's all newbie to you all, but thanx for helping
