Virtual Web Servers in Apache

I am running Linux kernel 2.0.12 and Apache 1.2 (I think the most current...) and I am trying to do virtual web hosting.  I have IP Aliasing built into my kernel, I have the DNS set up correctly, and I have this line in my /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0 alias www.domain.com

The first problem is that when I boot I am getting a syntax error on ifconfig.  The second problem is that nothing else about this works either...  ;)

You don't want IP aliasing in your kernel.  You need to compile
dummy devices.  (Compile them as modules by answering M in the
make config for dummy drivers)  then after you make the kernel
do:

make modules
make modules_install

/sbin/insmod -o dummy0 /lib/modules/2.0.12/net/dummy.o
/sbin/ifconfig dummy0 192.168.0.1 -broadcast up
/sbin/route add -host 192.168.0.1 dummy0
/sbin/arp -s 192.168.0.1 01:02:03:04:05:06:07:08 -t ether pub

you need to replace "01:02:03:04:05:06:07:08" with the hardware
address if your ethernet card (this can be obtained with
ifconfig eth0)

replace 192.168.0 with your class C.

for an additional virtual server:
increment dummy0 to dummy1
increment your 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.2
(this is just a suggestion if you want to allocate a class C to
virtual domains).

You will also want to put this in your rc.local script so that
your dummy devices load everytime you boot.
