Apache 2.0.40 Doesn't Like Me!

I am having some rather unusal problems with Apache 2.0.40. I am currently using the version of apache and configuration that comes with RedHat Linux 8, and it works fine for the normal website. But, when I try to use it on a virtual host, the transfer rate plummets to 5Kbps over my 100Mbps LAN. Why me?

Has anybody ever experienced a similar problem, or is it a bug with my version of Apache.

Here are two URLs that are the exact same files, except the latter is a virtual host, see for yourself.

One is an alias, the other is a virtual host.

Any ideas? Will sending the HTTPD file help at all?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Do all the addresses reolve into valid ip addresses?

I have seen something in the past that suggests all addresses must resolve properly or all virtual hosts will experience problems. I have a feeling that placing the dns entries in the hosts file next to (localhost and probably your top domain) should resolve this (if it is the problem).

Hope this helps

I have fixed the problem -- and it had nothing to do with what I thought it did.

I tried accessing my server at an external location, and both sites could be viewed with equal performance.

So, I checked, and apparently on my Windows box, the hosts file only pointed to my server, was directed to my server from the router, which greatly crippled the speed.

WOW -- I really hate windows. And people those people who don't like Macs -- I hate you too! (evil laugh)
