Subject Name Virtual Hosts OSX
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2002 19:45:05 GMT
I seem to be having a problem setting up name NameVirtualHosts. I have 
two hard drives on OSX. My startup and a partitioned drive. My site for 
( is on a partition called 'files' the path is 
'Volumes/files/Sites/accessemotus/'. The domain '' is hosted 
externally and '' points to my fixed IP address (the 
OSX server that I've set up). If I enter '' as the url 
in my browser I get the default apache html. I also get this if I enter 

I am new to apache so am probably doing something very simple wrong. 
Could somebody possibly give me some advice? I've included some of the 
httpd.conf set-up below.

Thanks in anticipation,



I've set the server to...

# You will have to access it by its address anyway, and this will make
# redirections work in a sensible way.


# UseCanonicalName: Determines how Apache constructs self-referencing
# URLs and the SERVER_N

and further down in the httpd.conf file :

NameVirtualHost *

<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /Volumes/files/Sites/accessemotus

however I get this message on server start:


[alert] httpd: Could not determine the server's fully qualified domain 
name, using for ServerName
/usr/sbin/apachectl start: httpd started
