Subject [users@httpd] Need help with VirtualHost/forwarding
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 23:27:12 GMT
I have three servers, all of which are running Apache: F is the failing 
server, P is the main production server, and I is the interim server.

Our current site is here on server F (failing server):

That server is failing - I need to get the site off of that server 
immediately.  I have posted a new version of the site on server P (the 
good production server):

Everyone has been using "" so I can't just kill off that 
DNS name.  The normal thing to do would be to update the DNS entry and 
point it to server P (production server) and update the VirtualHost 
entry on that server - the problem is that it can't be done for another 
couple weeks (IT department won't do it right away as it involves 
restarting all of the servers and a whole change management process).

So, what I would like to do in the interim is to point the DNS entry to 
server I (interim server) which has Apache running on it and just 
forward all users straight over to - it doesn't even need to keep the 
same URL in the address bar - I just need the user transferred over to 
the new site location.

This seems like it should be an easy thing to do, but I honestly have no 
idea how to do it and I would really appreciate your help!
