Apache 2.2.12 on SLES11 SP2. I am trying to get a subdomain working via a rewrite rule, http://helpdesk.teknerds.net.
The rule is in its own vhost (helpdesk.teknerds.conf. I am confused if it needs its own vhost or if the rewrite should go in teknerds.conf vhost) and follows:
<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerAdmin administrator@teknerds.net
   ServerName teknerds.net
   ServerAlias *.teknerds.net

   RewriteEngine On
   RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www|m|secure|admin).* [NC]

   RewriteRule ^(.*) /%1/$1 [L]

   DocumentRoot /opt/otrs/bin/cgi-bin/

The behavior that is happening is a listing of the site and it takes over all sites. So when you goto http://helpdesk.teknerds.net/, it lists the files in the doc root. If you goto http://teknerds.net it is the same listing as above. I expect helpdesk.teknerds.net to be its own site and all other sites to be there own.

Forgive me for asking an obvious question, but have you considered just having separate virtualhost blocks for each virtualhost? If you put a virtualhost for helpdesk.teknerds.net before this vhost, then it will catch that hostname before the wildcard serveralias is considered.
