Apache2 n00b.
We have a webserver that currently serves data to our clients. It is IP based and no DNS entry is assigned to if from the outside world.

We now wish to use this server to also host another site, one that will use

I have looked at virtual host documentation online, but alot of it is 10+ year old, or for older version of Apache. We want to be able to access a new site from, whilst still being ok to serve data via IP from \var\www\htdocs

What distro are you using? Is this for Apache2?

Here is a template which you can use.

On my SuSE system I simple save the file in /etc/apache2/vhosts.d with the .conf extension to make sure it is included when Apache2 loads.

You could build in these directives into /etc/apache2/httpd.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>
# DocumentRoot: The directory out of which you will serve your
# documents. By default, all requests are taken from this directory, but
# symbolic links and aliases may be used to point to other locations.
DocumentRoot /srv/www/vhosts/
# if not specified, the global error log is used
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/ combined
# don't loose time with IP address lookups
HostnameLookups Off
# needed for named virtual hosts
UseCanonicalName Off
# configures the footer on server-generated documents
ServerSignature On
# Optionally, include *.conf files from /etc/apache2/conf.d/
# For example, to allow execution of PHP scripts:
# Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/php5.conf
# or, to include all configuration snippets added by packages:
# Include /etc/apache2/conf.d/*.conf
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that
# documents in the realname directory are treated as applications and
# run by the server when requested rather than as documents sent to the client.
# The same rules about trailing "/" apply to ScriptAlias directives as to
# Alias.
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/srv/www/vhosts/"
# "/srv/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have one, and where ScriptAlias points to.
<Directory "/srv/www/vhosts/">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -Includes
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
# UserDir: The name of the directory that is appended onto a user's home
# directory if a ~user request is received.
# To disable it, simply remove userdir from the list of modules in APACHE_MODULES
# in /etc/sysconfig/apache2.
<IfModule mod_userdir.c>
# Note that the name of the user directory ("public_html") cannot simply be
# changed here, since it is a compile time setting. The apache package
# would have to be rebuilt. You could work around by deleting
# /usr/sbin/suexec, but then all scripts from the directories would be
# executed with the UID of the webserver.
UserDir public_html
# The actual configuration of the directory is in
# /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf.
Include /etc/apache2/mod_userdir.conf
# You can, however, change the ~ if you find it awkward, by mapping e.g.
# --> /home/karl-heinz/public_html/
#AliasMatch ^/users/([a-zA-Z0-9-_.]*)/?(.*) /home/$1/public_html/$2
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
<Directory "/srv/www/vhosts/">

# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
# Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
# Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All"
# doesn't give it to you.
# The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see
# for more information.
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
AllowOverride None

# Controls who can get stuff from this server.
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
