Subject RE: [users@httpd] How to access virtual hosts from another pc ?
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 14:35:12 GMT
I think this is indeed a DNS problem.


You must have something like this on your network :


server2003  86400 IN A     <>

bugzilla   IN CNAME server2003

avdp    IN CNAME server2003


The first entry points to the web server and the other two are aliases

I want to have two sites running on a win2003 server machine in our network 
which has a single ip address.
I have setup apache 2.0.59 with two name based virtual hosts, and modified 
the hosts file to allow me to access the sites by name.
The entries in httpd.conf are
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
   DocumentRoot C:\Bugzilla
   ServerName bugzilla
<VirtualHost *:80>
   DocumentRoot C:\avdp
   ServerName avdp
The hosts file contains bugzilla avdp

On that pc I can now browse the 2 sites using http://avdp, http://bugzilla

Now I want to access the sites from other machines on the network, but I'm
unclear how I set this up ?

I did setup a dns cname for each site, ie avdp and bugzilla pointing to the
win2003server machine, but I always get the first site listed, if I browse
either site.

Name Virtual  Hosts  works only with HTTP 1.1 so the first step is verify
that your browser (and proxy if you're using one) supports HTTP 1.1.
Normally you can find the HTTP version of the session in your access log. 

An other problem can be the dns, does it works if you modify the hosts file
on the remote pc? ( with the ip-addresses of the server of course :-) ) ?
