Subject [users@httpd] Query on Name-Based Virtual host (Default Virtual Host Block)
Date Tue, 17 Jun 2008 10:49:48 GMT
 

Hi,

 

Is it mandatory that the first virtual host block should contain default
host DocumentRoot so that resources can be accessed through virtual host
server? 

 

If I configure httpd.conf for Apache Webserver 2.0.59 (on Solaris) as
below 

with 

enterprise3.xyz.com pointing to Document Root as /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs
(default host)

vs1.xyz.com pointing to Document Root as /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs1  (virtual
server)

vs2.xyz.com pointing to Document Root as /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs2  (virtual
server)

I can access corresponding resources in each of these servers.

 

But if I remove the first Virtual Host block (i.e., used as default
host) then I can't access any of the resources in these 3 servers.

If I remove the first Virtual Host block and if the second VirtualHost
block is modified to DocumentRoot as /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs (keeping
everything else same as earlier setup), I can access the resources in
/usr/ga/Apa/htdocs through vs1.xyz.com (and can't access the resources
from other 2 servers).

 

Is it mandatory that the first virtual host block should contain default
host DocumentRoot (if the first virtual host block is not the default
host) so that resources can be accessed through virtual host server? 

 

# Use name-based virtual hosting.

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com

    DocumentRoot /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs

    ServerName enterprise3.xyz.com

    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log

    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common

</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com

    DocumentRoot /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs1

    ServerName vs1.xyz.com

    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log

    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common

</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>

    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com

    DocumentRoot /usr/ga/Apa/htdocs2

    ServerName vs2.xyz.com

    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log

    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common

</VirtualHost>

 

 

 

Regards,

Anil
