    Default Virtual Host... can't get it to work

    Hi,

    I am trying to set up a Virtual Host in Apache. The Virtual Host is called oci. The config files are as follows:

    default-server.conf
    Code:
    #
    # Global configuration that will be applicable for all virtual hosts, unless
    # deleted here, or overriden elswhere.
    # 
    NameVirtualHost 192.168.0.80
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/oci/htdocs
    
    #
    # Configure the DocumentRoot
    #
    <Directory /srv/www/oci/htdocs>
    	AllowOverride All
    	Options All
    </Directory>
    
    # Aliases: aliases can be added as needed (with no limit). The format is 
    # Alias fakename realname
    #
    # Note that if you include a trailing / on fakename then the server will
    # require it to be present in the URL.  So "/icons" isn't aliased in this
    # example, only "/icons/".  If the fakename is slash-terminated, then the 
    # realname must also be slash terminated, and if the fakename omits the 
    # trailing slash, the realname must also omit it.
    #
    # We include the /icons/ alias for FancyIndexed directory listings.  If you
    # do not use FancyIndexing, you may comment this out.
    #
    Alias /icons/ "/usr/share/apache2/icons/"
    
    <Directory "/usr/share/apache2/icons">
    	Options Indexes MultiViews
    	AllowOverride None
    	Order allow,deny
    	Allow from all
    </Directory>
    
    # 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/cgi-bin/"
    ScriptAlias /oci/ "/srv/www/oci/"
    
    # "/srv/www/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
    # CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
    #

    Code:
    #
    # hosts         This file describes a number of hostname-to-address
    #               mappings for the TCP/IP subsystem.  It is mostly
    #               used at boot time, when no name servers are running.
    #               On small systems, this file can be used instead of a
    #               "named" name server.
    # Syntax:

    # The following examples work when uncommented:

    #
    # Example 1: Fire up a mail to the admin if a connection to the printer daemon

    # lpd : foo.bar.com : spawn /bin/echo "&#37;h printer access" | \
    #                               mail -s "tcp_wrappers on %H" root
    # 
    #
    # Example 2: grant access from local net, reject with message from elsewhere.
    # in.telnetd : ALL EXCEPT LOCAL : ALLOW
    # in.telnetd : ALL : \
    #    twist /bin/echo -e "\n\raccess from %h declined.\n\rGo away.";sleep 2
    #
    #
    # Example 3: run a different instance of rsyncd if the connection comes 
    #            from network 172.20.0.0/24, but regular for others:
    # rsyncd : 172.20.0.0/255.255.255.0 : twist /usr/local/sbin/my_rsyncd-script
    # rsyncd : ALL : ALLOW
    #
    
    sshd : 127.0.0.1 : allow
    sshd : 192.168.* : allow
    When I do httpd2 -S I get:
    Code:
    apollo:/etc/sysconfig # httpd2 -S
    [Tue Jul 08 23:24:23 2008] [warn] module php5_module is already loaded,skipping
    VirtualHost configuration:
    192.168.0.80:*         is a NameVirtualHost
             default server oci (/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/oci.conf:16)
             port * namevhost oci (/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/oci.conf:16)
    Syntax OK
    apollo:/etc/sysconfig #
    Then when I browse to http://oci it just says can't connect. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any suggestions much appreciated. http://localhost is fine.

    Default Re: Virtual Host... can't get it to work

    Probably oci is not resolving to the IP address because it's getting your default domain appended before sending to your DNS nameserver. Try using a full domain name like oci.localdomain. But there's a flaw in your using /etc/hosts anyway, all clients have to resolve your virtual domain name to the IP address, so just putting it in /etc/hosts isn't going to work for clients on the LAN, /etc/hosts only works on the same machine.

    Hi Ken_yap,

    Thanks for your reply... I only want it to work on the local machine for the moment. I don't need it to be resolved by DNS or anything, just when I type http://oci I want it to load up as per conf files.

    I am trying to develop a php application following a book and it says to create a Virtual Host. It's like having two local hosts I suppose, one of them called oci.

    Funny thing is that the ip for oci: 192.168.0.80 doesn't work either...

    No page at all? Check your firewall perhaps. Or apache isn't running.

    Apache seems to be ok... http://localhost works. I will have a look at the firewall see if that's the problem.

    Default Re: Virtual Host... can't get it to work

    But if you are only ever going to access the web server from itself, then you can just resolve oci.localdomain to 127.0.0.1 (localhost) and not worrying about solving the firewall issue.

    I was using XAMPP for a bit and had to go to http://localhost/drupal5 to connect to my local drupal installation.

    Might try http://localhost/oci
