Configuring Virtual Hosts in Apache 2 w/ Mandrake Linux 9.1.


Good Afternoon All!

Hi, I currently run a web server running windows 2003 enterprise server, used primarily for IIS 6. However, frankly I am sick of microsoft and want to learn more about linux. I took that server offline last night, and installed mandrake linux 9.1. I like! However, having some issues configuring Virtual Hosts in the http2.conf file. Let give an example of a host I am trying to create:

<VirtualHost WEBSITEURL:81>
DocumentRoot /home/bnscomp/www
ServerSignature On
</VirtualHost>

The problem is, after making the changes and restarting apache, It will still point the site to /var/www/html. I just dont understand. Now, a few other things. The directory (ie. /home/bnscomp/www) has been created, and contains an index.html file. Also, due to my ISP blocking port 80, anyone typing WEBSITEURL, will then forward to WEBSITEURL:81. Which then arrives at my server.

Any assistence into this matter would be VERY much appreciated! Thanks in advance for all your help

P.S. Because this is my first thread it's not letting me type a url, so,
WEBSITEURL=
ww2.
blah
.com

Try the format:
Code:
NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /home/bnscomp/www
    ServerName www.bnscomp.com
<Directory "/home/bnscomp/www">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>
You only need:
NameVirtualHost *:80

Once then copy the VirtualHost section for each host.

GREAT! Thanks a lot for the help! It works GREAT! Boy I am really starting to fall for the penguin! LOL. Anyways, one more thing. Is it possible to have the logs for each domain, saved in a different directory? If so, what would I have to add to the virtual hosts section? Thanks again!
