Virtual Host Redirection

Apr 30, 2008

explain our setup.

We have an in house centOS linux developer box running apache 2.x

We have our own on-site router/switch setup etc.

We host our external website with Networksolutions

On our DNS (via network solutions). We have our domain pointing to our external IP address. -> xx.xx.xx.xx

In our router configuration we have forwarding to our CentOS linux development box. it's forwarding to the internal network IP address 10.xx.xx.xx

However we want the box to redirect someone when they come in on We basically want it to redirect them to

Preferably masked so that all someone would see is but they're actually at

Unfortunately network solutions's setup won't allow us to easily do this so we have to do it somehow locally.

Anyone have any suggestions? I've got this working on the box itself (if you goto the site on the box via gnome) however externally or on another system on our internal network it's a no go.

New Virtual Host ... Restart Necessary?

When you set up a new domain you have to write a new virtual host to httpd.conf... then you have to restart the Apache... Is their a way to do this without the restart. Surely a big ISP doesn't restart Apache every time a new domain is added.

Apache Virtual Host

Jul 25, 2008

For some reason, the first virtual host i have listed in apache2.conf gets all the traffic of all the other virtual hosts listed below it.

Example: Domain is listed as the first virtual host. the second, third, and fourth are,, and, respectively (fictitious domains). However, it seems that everything below goes straight to

If i switch the first entry, with any of the others, such as, so that is the first virtual host entry, everything then forwards to that domain.

Open_basedir With Virtual Host

Feb 5, 2008

I am trying to do open_basedir in my httpd.conf file using wildcards so I dont have to set it up for EACH account.

Here is my Virtual Host part in my conf:

<VirtualHost *>
VirtualDocumentRoot /www/%2+/%1.1/%1.2/%1.3/%1/htdocs/
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www..*$
RewriteRule ^(.+) %{HTTP_HOST}$1 [C]
RewriteRule ^www.(.+) http://$1 [P]
RequestHeader unset Accept-Encoding
RequestHeader unset Content-Encoding
I have tried putting:
php_admin_value open_basedir /www/%2+/%1.1/%1.2/%1.3/%1/htdocs/

But I get this error looking at ANY PAGE:

Fatal error: Can't load /www/{FILE_IM_ON}, open_basedir restriction. in Unknown on line 0

How To Connect Virtual PC To Host PC

Jun 10, 2007

I've downloaded and installed the Microsoft Virtual PC image for testing IE6. The development copy of my website is on the host PC, running on Windows XP/Apache/PHP. I need to use IE6 on the virtual PC to view pages served up by Apache on the host PC.

I know this requires networking them together, but I've no idea how to do that. I've installed the Microsoft Loopback Adapter on the host PC, and told the virtual PC it can use that adapter in the Virtual PC settings dialogue, but on the host PC the loopback adapter says "limited or no connectivity".

(Before someone suggests it, I've been using MultipleIEs. Trouble is, you can't test printing with that - you need a proper copy of IE6.)

Apache - Run Virtual Host As User

Jun 5, 2009

I've run into a wall trying to run apache with multiple websites allowing users to use FTPd to manage files.

I'm running FreeBSD 7.1 on Apache 2.2.x

The issue is that Apache runs as www:www but FTPd writes the files as username:client. When performing some scripts that edit back-end files, this obviously can cause errors.

The data for each directory is stored in /home/username/www

I looked into some apache directives I could use. I tried putting User and Group directives into the vhost configuration for each vhost, but that did not work. I even found the perchild module and it looked like it can do the job but was a bit scared and turned off by the fact that it states it is beta at the top of the page. (I cannot link to it because I do not have enough posts.)

VPS To Host Proxmox Virtual Appliances

Feb 28, 2009

In the proxmox site they say that they have tested and validated virtual appliances for major virtualization technologies (VMWare, OpenVZ and Virtuozzo).

However I contacted two VPS providers and both said they cannot host this due to custom kernel of this product.

I wish to know are there any other hosts who can host this in a VPS.

My requirements are like 300GB disk space and 800G of monthly bandwidth (prefer a guaranteed core).

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 16 of /etc/httpd/conf/virtualhosts.conf:

Any other way to allow .htaccess through virtual hosts?

Who Is The BEST Virtual Dedicated Server Host

May 11, 2008

what hosts are considered the best for virtual dedicated servers.

I know about the big names like GoDaddy and Yahoo, but who really has the best service and (importantly) the best price/value?

Heres what I need power-wise: Something that offers 2GB+ of RAM to me, 20GB+ Hard Drive space, and something thats running on Windows. I intend to run 3 e-commerce sites off this, so if you think I need more power please recommend it.

Apache ReverseProxy On Virtual Host

Nov 20, 2007

Today I configured a Virtual Host (VH) for one of my customers. VH run on WindowsServer 2003 Apache 2.0.59. I enabled mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http modules and successfully loaded. Here is the VH config:


DocumentRoot C:/Apache2/htdocs/www/
DirectoryIndex index.php
<Proxy *>
Order Deny,Allow
Allow from all
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass /cms-test [url]
ProxyPassReverse /cms-test [url]
ProxyPass /cms-eshop [url]
ProxyPassReverse /cms-eshop [url]
ErrorLog logs/
CustomLog logs/ combined
According stated above proxy should map the content of yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:80 and send it to client... Apache doesn't do that but redirects client directly to yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy instead, even rewriting URL, what is not proper purpose of proxy. I would expect proxy to retrieve content from yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:80 and forward it to client without URL rewriting. Rewriting URL and direct aiming of client to source of content is unsuccessfull of course, because the source (yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy:80) trust only to which has a right to request a content.

Could anybody explain why proxy doesn't proxy and redirects instead?

Virtual Host Redirects All Requests

Dec 31, 2007

I just went with Steadcom's VPS and they are great. I am setting things up and it's going pretty well, I have to dust off my linux/server knowledge that I haven't used in a couple of years.

Anyway I'm creating a virtual host.. I will have about 10 in the end, but right now I only have one domain IP Pointing to my new server. My registrar is NamesDirect.

When I create the virtual host, I can no longer access subdirectories directly. My Virtual Host directory is, say, /var/www/html/newdir

If I try to reach which has been configued as a virtual host, that comes up correctly from the directory /var/www/html/newdir and works fine.

But if I try to reach http://myipaddress/newdir I get a 404 page not found error. Looking at the log, it's trying to reach /var/www/html/newdir/newdir so it's putting in the virtual host redirect even for just hitting the subdirectory directly.

Is this normal? Do I have something configured wrong? I have another domain that I have changed to IP Point to the VPS but until it propogates I won't be able to test having 2 virtual hosts.

Also.. I have not set up DNS on my VPS. I don't really understand it, and IP Pointing has always worked for me when I ran my own server form my home so I was just going to do that. But I wonder if this could be one of the problems.

Catching A Spamming Virtual Host

Aug 8, 2007

I am managing few virtual domains on a server.

Recently I have seen lots of email activity. Most of the emails are being sent with php scripts which are run under apache. what I want is to catch the culprit domain

so the sender's return path in most cases is root@xxxxx as apache is running under root user.

The server runs plesk admin panel.

I know I can always inspect messages in the queue, qmhandle is good as well to do so. but is there any better way.

e.g. is there a way that instead of emails sent from php scripts with apache user domain name in return path and not root@server etc.

any tools to analyze this activity and then take necessary actions.

Apache :: Setup A Virtual Host

Aug 7, 2014

I have a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 install (desktop). I installed Apache, php and mysql from APT and updated everything.I tried to setup a virtual host using these directions: URL...I followed them to the letter:

o I created a folder /var/www/mydomain.local/public_html
o I copied the 000-default.conf in sites available and modified it
o I added mydomain.local to my hosts file (with IP of
o I used a2ensite to enable the host
o I used service apache2 reload

When I went to mydomain.local in firefox, it took me to the default host main page.I tried a restart of the service and even a reboot of the computer. No change.On a theory, I used a2dissite to remote 000-default from the enabled site list and reloaded the service. I got the home page for mydomain.local after that.

I created a named host called localhost and reloaded the apache. When I went to http://localhost it took me to the mydomain.local homepage. Rebooted the computer. Now, localhost gives me the apache default home page and mydomain.local does not work at all (I get a server not found).

I get the feeling that there is an apache configuration item I am missing but I cannot find it.

Apache :: Virtual Host Not Using Its Web Root Doc Folder

Jul 29, 2014

I use Webmin (1.69) to work on my development environment. I am using Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 right now. I am not exactly an Ubuntu newbie but I would not call myself an expert either.

I created a virtual host (newdomain.local) with webmin. I filled in all the fields and saved the new VH definition. I added newdomain.local to my hosts file with an ip address of and restarted apache.

When I go to [URL] ...., it is not taking me to the VH's home page but to the default home page.

Why this might be happening?

May 28, 2007

I'm looking for a host located in UK that can accept/support vpn/tunnel connections to the VPS - creation and access to vps' /dev/net/tun (TAP/TUN device) for use with tunneling services like vtun.

I am currently a customer of, they look very good host but unfortunately they dont accept or support vpn on their VPS plans.

The bigger the list of hosts supporting vpn, the best.

Maybe hosts of other european countries too, if connection speed is acceptable.

Apache :: Accessing Host Running On Virtual Machine

Jul 25, 2014

I have an Apache server running on a virtual machine and I want to be able to access the pages it serves from a browser running on the host OS.

I am using OracleVM virtualbox as my VM platform.
I am using windows 7 as my host OS.
I am using ubuntu as my guest OS.

I have managed to set up a virtual host so that it works from browsers running in the guest OS (ubuntu)

But I cannot get it to serve these pages to a browser running in the host OS windows.

The config file in the apache2/sites-available and apache2/sites-enabled has the following config for the virtual host I am trying to access.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName testsite
DocumentRoot /var/newserver
<Directory />
