Apache: Virtual Host Config question
 
I have 2 domain names (myvent.com & pmtoolkit.com) that I am trying to set up on my Apache 2.0 server which is running on a Red Hat Linux 9 installation.

The DNS servers of my ISP point both domain names to the static IP address of my Linux server - 208.181.164.164

Here's what I want to do:

If a user enters http://208.181.164.164 I want the server to serve an index.html page from the DocumentRoot which is "/var/www/html".

If a user enter http://www.myvent.com I want the server to serve a page from the myvent.com VirtualHost DocumentRoot which is "/var/www/html/vent/phpBB"

If a user enters http://www.pmtoolkit.com I want the server to serve a page from the pmtoolkit.com VirtualHost DocumentRoot which is "/var/www/html/pmtoolkit"

Here's what happens:

If a user enters http://www.myvent.com, a page from this VirtualHost's DocumentRoot is served.

If a user enters http://www.pmtoolkit.com, a page from this VirtualHost's DocumentRoot is served.

If a user on the local LAN enters http://192.168.50.1 (this is the local IP address of the linux server), a page from the DocumentRoot "/var/www/html" is served.

However, if a user enters http://208.181.164.164, a page from the VirtualHost pmtoolkit.com's DocumentRoot ("/var/www/html/vent/phpBB") is served instead of a page from the DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"

Could someone please help me solve this.

I have listed part of my httpd.conf file below:

Thanks,

Need more information, what is inside your <VirtualHost ...> directive
Are you behind a firewall?
what is your local ip address?

Actually, I think I've mentioned this information in my earlier post or maybe I am not sure what you might be refering to (note: I am a newbie at Linux). I've copied the same info below:

And, the local IP of the machine on which the apache server is running is: 192.168.50.1.

There's no firewall at present but I'll try to set it up after I get this resolved.


Here's part of the httpd.conf file:

Well this works for me

NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.16

<VirtualHost 192.168.1.16>
UseCanonicalName off
ServerAdmin me@myworld.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html

CustomLog /var/log/apache/apache-access_log common
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.16>
UseCanonicalName off
ServerAdmin me@myworld.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/test1
ServerName test1.gotdns.com
ErrorLog /var/log/apache/test1.gotdns.com-errorlog
CustomLog /var/log/apache/test1.gotdns.com-access_log common
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.16>
UseCanonicalName off
ServerAdmin me@myworld.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/test2

</VirtualHost>

That's it. The solution is to configure in your httpd.conf

NameVirtualHost 192.168.50.1

instead of

NameVirtualHost 208.181.164.164

and when you type in the domain names they will lead to the different directories (set via DocumentRoot directive) correctly.
