Apache configuration


Hi all,

I feel kind of stupid that I have to ask, but here it goes.
I have a webserver which has several virtual hosts.

I installed phpmyadmin for a little while to monitor some database creation scripts that I had, and then I removed it again.

Now, when I navigate with any url to the server (given that the url is linked to its ip address) I end up to the first virtual host it can find.

so yea, this is not good, and I have no idea where to start looking

Any advice and/or ideas to fix this? Also, if you need to see any files, just ask and I'll post them

Http://Server.com/phpmyadmin should do the trick

I think there's a little mis communication here.

I no longer require phpmyadmin on the server, because we now connect to the database through ssh connection.
But the fact remains that if I navigate to the server using http://bogus.somedomain.com that I end up on the first virtual host on the system,
for instance: http://api.somedomain.com
(no url redirect, the apache config just matches the api subdomain as the one for bogus...)

Code:
#
# Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ for detailed information about
# the directives.
#
# 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.  
#
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
#  1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
#     whole (the 'global environment').
#  2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
#     which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
#     These directives also provide default values for the settings
#     of all virtual hosts.
#  3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
#     different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
#     same Apache server process.
#
# 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 "/var/log/apache2/foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "" will be interpreted by the
# server as "//var/log/apache2/foo.log".
#

### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation (available
# at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.1/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

#
# The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.
#
#<IfModule !mpm_winnt.c>
#<IfModule !mpm_netware.c>
LockFile /var/lock/apache2/accept.lock
#</IfModule>
#</IfModule>

#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
# This needs to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
#
PidFile /var/run/apache2.pid

#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
Timeout 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive On

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 15

Does bogus.somedomain.com point to __SERVERIP__ ip ?
(edit, yes it seems to as you access the web server using this name)

There is no virtualhost directives in your httpd.conf, maybe there are described in files in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ or in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ directory ?

Thx for all the help but I've found some feedback on the issue.
It seems that when you have a dns record that links all *.somedomain.com addresses to a server, that it matches all unknown subdomains to the first one it find.
And the sites-enabled symlink called 000-default was designed to catch those requests.

I reenabled that "site", and now you just get the "it works" text, which is a lot better then the loginscreen to the server maintenance like it did before.
