Virtual hosing (config problem of NAMED and APACHE)

Hello Everybody,

 Ihave Linux 6.0 version machine. And I have installed my DNS eserver on one machine and Apache on othere machine.
Now I want to do virtual hosting on Apache. So my main (master) domain is working properly from the begining.
But my virtual hosting are not working by name .
It can work with IP if you type http://IP then it works fine.
Now I registered a domain name on easyspace.com. and I did changes over there I point my DNS server there according to its reqirement.

So what could be the changes i hae to do in my named and Apache.

AS per my knowledge I did changes. But this virtual hosting working only under my main domain!! it doesn`t work through dial-up without giving my DNS entry in machine!!


If i give DNS entry in anybody`s machine it will work fine through names and IP.


So please what could be files and how i have to change that.

PLease reply me as early as possible.

Regards,
Jatin.

make sure your DNS points to your apache server i.e
www.virtualhost IN CNAME name.of .your.apache server
try going to http://www.apache.org/docs/vhosts

Hi Jat,
if it is working by using the IP address then you can try to update your hosts file in the /etc directory.

There you map the IP with the name of your virtual host.
Try it out and let us know.

You will have to give more information.
I don't know exactly what you have done already. Is your httpd.conf file setup correctly {VirtualHost entries}. You also need to point your db files towards the apache pc's IP.

goto /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and scroll to the bottom.  you will need to add the following:

<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>                                                  
DocumentRoot /home/virtualdomain name/public_html                                        
ServerName www.virtual domain name.com                                                    
UserDir public_html                                                            
</VirtualHost>
