UNIX rookie here with a FreeBSD/Apache(Frontpage) box
Apache is set up with ip based virtual hosts, 12 ips at this time.
After much reading here in the FreeBSDdiary, and the Apache man, I understand ServerAlias will not work with the ip based virtual hosts, so I activated NameVirtualHost two different ways (after adding ServerAlias in the target VirtualHost Container) :
1. Igoring the instructions in httpd.conf to include a port number at the end of the NameVirtualHost ip string
2. Following instructions in httpd.conf to include a port number (80) at the end of the NameVirtualHost ip string
No other changes were made to httpd.conf
After each attempt I restarted Apache using /usr/local/sbin/apachectl graceful
Each attempt was unsuccesful. Suggestions are appreciated. I am a bit reluctant to go wholesale Name-based virtual hosts, as the box is a good workhorse (it ain't broke... etc). But I DO need to get ServerAlias working.
