Subject [users@httpd] Problem with accessing Document Root (?)
Date Sun, 07 Jun 2015 14:17:38 GMT
Background

I run Ubuntu.

I have run a LAMP server for a number of years for my web development. 
Never had any problems. Installed using the Synaptic package manager.

I use virtual hosting. My development site's file structure mirrors my 
public server's file structure.

My hosts file directs my test urls to my server.

I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04. This is when the problem 
began.

In trying to solve my problem I removed apache completely and reinstalled.

Any and all help very much appreciated.

Issue

I cannot access my files. It seems that apache is looking in the wrong 
place for document root and I cannot figure out what is causing this.

When I try to access a virtual site, in my browser 
(http://www.roissytest.ca/), I get:

Index of /
[ICO]    Name    Last modified    Size    Description
Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at www.roissytest.ca Port 80

In my virtual-sites file I have:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
     DocumentRoot /home/stephen/www/roissy.ca/public_html
     ServerName www.roissytest.ca
     ErrorLog /home/stephen/www/roissy.ca/public_html/error.log
     TransferLog /home/stephen/www/roissy.ca/public_html/transfer.log
</VirtualHost>

Now I step back and use my browser to connect to 127.0.0.1:

Index of /
[ICO]    Name    Last modified    Size    Description
Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at 127.0.0.1 Port 80

In /var/www I have a index.html file with Hello World.

My error log file shows nothing unusual:

My access.log file shows:

My apache2.conf has not been touched from the install:

# This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/ for detailed information about
# the directives and /usr/share/doc/apache2/README.Debian about Debian 
specific
# hints.
#
#
# Summary of how the Apache 2 configuration works in Debian:
# The Apache 2 web server configuration in Debian is quite different to
# upstream's suggested way to configure the web server. This is because 
Debian's
# default Apache2 installation attempts to make adding and removing modules,
# virtual hosts, and extra configuration directives as flexible as 
possible, in
# order to make automating the changes and administering the server as 
easy as
# possible.

# It is split into several files forming the configuration hierarchy 
outlined
# below, all located in the /etc/apache2/ directory:
#
#    /etc/apache2/
#    |-- apache2.conf
#    |    `--  ports.conf
#    |-- mods-enabled
#    |    |-- *.load
#    |    `-- *.conf
#    |-- conf-enabled
#    |    `-- *.conf
#     `-- sites-enabled
#         `-- *.conf
#
#
# * apache2.conf is the main configuration file (this file). It puts the 
pieces
#   together by including all remaining configuration files when 
starting up the
#   web server.
#
# * ports.conf is always included from the main configuration file. It is
#   supposed to determine listening ports for incoming connections which 
can be
#   customized anytime.
#
# * Configuration files in the mods-enabled/, conf-enabled/ and 
sites-enabled/
#   directories contain particular configuration snippets which manage 
modules,
#   global configuration fragments, or virtual host configurations,
#   respectively.
#
#   They are activated by symlinking available configuration files from 
their
#   respective *-available/ counterparts. These should be managed by 
using our
#   helpers a2enmod/a2dismod, a2ensite/a2dissite and a2enconf/a2disconf. See
#   their respective man pages for detailed information.
#
# * The binary is called apache2. Due to the use of environment 
variables, in
#   the default configuration, apache2 needs to be started/stopped with
#   /etc/init.d/apache2 or apache2ctl. Calling /usr/bin/apache2 directly 
will not
#   work with the default configuration.


# Global configuration
#

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the Mutex documentation (available
# at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/core.html#mutex>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
#ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

#
# The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.
#
Mutex file:${APACHE_LOCK_DIR} default

#
# PidFile: The file in which the server should record its process
# identification number when it starts.
# This needs to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
#
PidFile ${APACHE_PID_FILE}

#
# Timeout: The number of seconds before receives and sends time out.
#
Timeout 300

#
# KeepAlive: Whether or not to allow persistent connections (more than
# one request per connection). Set to "Off" to deactivate.
#
KeepAlive On

#
# MaxKeepAliveRequests: The maximum number of requests to allow
# during a persistent connection. Set to 0 to allow an unlimited amount.
# We recommend you leave this number high, for maximum performance.
#
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100

#
# KeepAliveTimeout: Number of seconds to wait for the next request from the
# same client on the same connection.
#
KeepAliveTimeout 5


# These need to be set in /etc/apache2/envvars
User ${APACHE_RUN_USER}
Group ${APACHE_RUN_GROUP}

#
# HostnameLookups: Log the names of clients or just their IP addresses
# e.g., www.apache.org (on) or 204.62.129.132 (off).
# The default is off because it'd be overall better for the net if people
# had to knowingly turn this feature on, since enabling it means that
# each client request will result in AT LEAST one lookup request to the
# nameserver.
#
HostnameLookups Off

# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
# If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>
# container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be
# logged here.  If you *do* define an error logfile for a <VirtualHost>
# container, that host's errors will be logged there and not here.
#
ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

#
# LogLevel: Control the severity of messages logged to the error_log.
# Available values: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
# error, crit, alert, emerg.
# It is also possible to configure the log level for particular modules, 
e.g.
# "LogLevel info ssl:warn"
#
LogLevel warn

# Sets the default security model of the Apache2 HTTPD server. It does

# The following directives define some format nicknames for use with
# a CustomLog directive.
#
# These deviate from the Common Log Format definitions in that they use %O
# (the actual bytes sent including headers) instead of %b (the size of the

# requests.
#
# Note that the use of %{X-Forwarded-For}i instead of %h is not recommended.
# Use mod_remoteip instead.
