Apache 2 lan & internet


I want apache2 serve the same pages to my lan and to internet
My config:

Code:
NameVirtualHost 10.19.146.161:80
................................
<VirtualHost 10.19.146.161:80>
     ServerAdmin root@localhost
     DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
     ServerName mysite.com
     ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/mysite.log
</VirtualHost>
.................................
<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerAdmin root@localhost
     DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
     ServerName mysite.homeip.net
     ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/mysite_inet.log
</VirtualHost>
Mysite on lan works fine
When i try to access the site from internet i see apache2's default page.
However, i can access the site using mysite.homeip.net/mysite and i am facing some problems (page not found problems - work perfecy on lan)

Do i have to define a new NameVirtualHost ? (my ip is dynamic)
I dont have any firewall (closed until i get it working), and NAT/PAT seems to work (i get the default).

Now, firstly I dont understand why do you have to use virtual hosts for your situation at all.. But im gona ssume you have a good reason for it.

I just figured a few hours ago how the virtualhosts actually work.. So, basing on that, id suggest you try out this virtualHost config:
Code:
NameVirtualHost *:80

# LAN
<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
ServerName mysite.com # a LAN domain pointer
</VirtualHost>

# PUBLIC
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
    ServerName mysite.homeip.net # a public domain for your site
ServerAlias *.mysite.homeip.net # you prolly dont need this, my subdomains do.. 
</VirtualHost>
I dont guarantee itll work, but worth a try..

Is there a reason you are using Virtual hosts? No need to if all you want to do is serve the same pages/site for both LAN and WAN.


Check out http://www.no-ip.com, they have a program to automatically check for changes in your assigned IP, and when it detects a change it will update the dns records.

I've got some of the same problem:

I can't get this to work:

I'm trying to get me1.homeftp.org to point to /var/www/ and me2.shacknet.nu to /var/www/me2/

Code:
NameVirtualHost me1.homeftp.org
NameVirtualHost me2.shacknet.nu

<VirtualHost me1.homeftp.org>
     ServerAdmin admin@me1.homeftp.org
     DocumentRoot /var/www/
     ServerName me1.homeftp.org
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost me2.shacknet.nu>
     ServerAdmin admin@me1.homeftp.org
     DocumentRoot /var/www/me2
     ServerName me2.shacknet.nu
</VirtualHost>
For both me1.homeftp.org and me2.shacknet.nu I get to /var/www, but I want me2.shacknet.nu to point to /var/www/me2

What am I doing wrong?

If you start your httpd with the parameter S, what does it tell you?
Code:
httpd -S
Its a switch to closely evaluate the virtual hosts config..

httpd -doesnt exist anymore (or at least debian distro)

try: apache2ctl -S


Also change
NameVirtualHost me1.homeftp.org
NameVirtualHost <IP>

<IP>= ip of the interface where gets the inet (eth to router or something like that)
