Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

Apache - virtual hosts (continued) 22 October 1998

Note: this document was originally written using ml.org as the main domain.  When ml.org disappeared, I started using .cx.  I have since changed all references to ml.org to .cx.  For information on how I did that, see httpd/dns.

Note: I've since stopped using freebsddiary.cx for my test examples.  I now use http://test.freebsddiary.org.

Note: I've let racingsystem.cx lapse.  I now longer use it.

Virtual servers
Despite my previous attempts at getting virtual websites going, they never worked.   So today I started trying it again.  Here's what I added to the bottom of: my Apache configuration file (/usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf)

<VirtualHost 192.168.0.45>
   DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/data/test.freebsddiary.org
   ServerName test.freebsddiary.org
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/freebsddiary.org-error.log
   TransferLog /var/log/apache/freebsddiary.org-access.log
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 192.168.0.45>
   DocumentRoot /usr/local/www/data/www.test.freebsddiary.org
   ServerName freebsddiary.yi.org
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/www.test.freebsddiary.org-error.log
   TransferLog /var/log/apache/www.test.freebsddiary.org-access.log
</VirtualHost>

Where 192.168.0.45 is the IP address of my FreeBSD box.  Then I restarted apache.

Then I browsed to the following two locations:

http://www.test.freebsddiary.org/

http://test.freebsddiary.org/

You will note that the IP address for each of these domains is the same.  That's the benefit of virtual servers.
