Will Suse do this [domain related]


right on windoze xp im trying to accomplish this:

ive got a domain which i host myself. im on BB but because my IP changes quite often, i thought that if i sign up to and get their client to auto-detect my IP all the time, i can then redirect my address to my domain.

this works ok and i can see the apache page when i type in my domain.

But if i try and add a folder to the equasion and try to access that folder on my domain it wont work.

so for example works

but if i add a folder called "test" and then try that wont work and i get The page cannot be found. this is because im using a framed page but i want to keep it that way (so people who visit my page can only see my address in the address bar.

Now i understand from what ive been told i need to setup a dns server to do this properly. (so that for example would work) So would Suse be able to handle this ? i know it has built in webserver, i was just wondering if it would handle a DNS server too

I don't know why anyone is telling you to run a DNS server to pull this off. I've got basically the same set up. A subdomain of (provided by No-IP), and apache running on RH7.3. I can add directories at or below my DocumentRoot and not have to do anything with Apache to be able to get to them. Of course if the directory is outside the DocumentRoot and I add a <Directory>...</Directory> block I do have to restart Apache.

I add directories on a regular basis to my website. In fact, I recently did a complete rewrite and put the new version out and didn't have to cycle Apache for it to pick it up. None of the directories stayed the same, all new stuff.
