Virtual Name Servers


I know some one is getting tired of this but I need someone who has set-up Virtual Name Server on MD 9.0 and willing to share with me their experience from A to Z on how to install it. Please don't say read over at Apache, have done that but can't be done by me because I'm still missing something critical that I'm not sure of. Therefore I need an advise from someone who has done it in MD 9.0 distribution would be greatly appreciated. By reading this forum I know some people have it running and I have tried to leave some of them a note but they didn't respond - they are busy perhaps. Some of the answers I'm looking for are: 1) Can I use Webmin? 2) My readings tells me I need a virtual server for the default server, is that true? 3)Changes in Conf, what needs to be added other than virtual name and directives? Example, do I need to change the server name from the default to some other or keep the name same as my default name of the server? 4) what about the guy had problems with virtual name problems until he changed apache name to another unix user? C I can go on and on.... In MD 9.0 Apache, Apache with Apache group is used, I believe.

Thanks.

Well, where should I start. It crashes and burns, I mean the Apache will not restart is where I guess where I can begin. I have to do some major fiddling to get it going again or I just reinstall Apache. Are there any open source software for this? What about chroot? How do I set-up with that? I tried to use Webmin too but it dosn't work again will not restart. Should I go on? LOL

Thanks.

well I think the only thing to do is to go at it with an editor.
the 1.3x versions of apache have one file to worry about

/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

versions 2x have two files

/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
/etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

if you have 2x you can eliminate the ssl.conf by commenting it out in httpd.conf

backup the files before you start doing anything if it crumbles just start with the original file again

every version of apache I've every installed came up working out of the box

just uncomment the example virtual host and change the names and other related stuff and go from there
