Subject [users@httpd] Change Document Root
Date Thu, 08 May 2003 20:27:30 GMT
I'm trying to get an application (RT from Bestpractical) to run on my
OpenBSD box.  I was having troulbe with the VirtualHost configuration,
so I tried to simply change the document root the the desired directory,
since this is the only site being served from this machine.  When using
the standard /var/www/htdocs directory, everything works fine.  By
making a few slight changes to httpd.conf, I can not access index.html
in the /opt/rt3/share/html.  I get the error '[error] [client
192.168.168.244] File does not exist: /opt/rt3/share/html/index.html'
when I try and access the page.

I've attached my entire httpd.conf.  Can you see any problems?  Here is
the directory listing of /opt/rt3/share/html:

bash-2.05b# cd /opt/rt3/share/html
bash-2.05b# ls -
ls: -: No such file or directory
bash-2.05b# ls -l
total 20
drwxrwxrwx  7 www  bin   512 Apr 15 08:54 Admin
drwxrwxrwx  3 www  bin   512 Apr 15 08:54 Approvals
drwxrwxrwx  2 www  bin  1536 Apr 15 08:54 Elements

-rwxrwxrwx  1 www  bin  4857 Apr 15 08:54 autohandler -rwxrwxrwx  1 www
bin  2757 Apr 15 08:54 index.html -rwxrwxrwx  1 www  bin  1114 Apr 15
08:54 l bash-2.05b# 

Does anything jump out?  I've been looking at this for hours and I'm
starting to see double...

Thanks.

.. imho, and not seeing the rest of your apache, if you point a browser
at rt.domain.com with rt.domain.com mapping to 192.168.168.51 it'll
work.

However, and apache can be quite black magic with this, if you point
your browser at 192.168.168.51 rather than rt.domain.com it doesn't have
enough information to determine the actual VirtualHost - so, depending
on how you have your apache setup it'l either;

* fall through to the default machine setup (ie, no virtualhost)
* fall through to some "default" virtual host, which I can't remember
  how or why at 1am.

(not having enough information actually means "Whats the Host:
header?"..)
