in my dns www.mysite.com and
mysite.com has identical IP-s.
however in the browser typing
www.mysite.com shows site
while mysite.com not.
how should I change settings?
my virtualhosh looks like this:

<VirtualHost www.mysite.com>
DocumentRoot /www/docs/abc
ServerName www.mysite.com
</VirtualHost>

Thanks

perhaps create one more virtualhost

<VirtualHost mysite.com>
DocumentRoot /www/docs/abc
ServerName mysite.com
</VirtualHost>

Helped?

Or, you can skip VirtualHost at all, unless you have other VirtualHost hosted under the same Apache.

Or straight from httpd.conf (mine was Apache 1.3.23 Win32).   This should take care in a scenarios where you clients might be using IP address (most unlikely, but it is possible).

# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#NameVirtualHost *

#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for requests without a known
# server name.
#
#<VirtualHost *>
#    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
#    DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com
#    ServerName dummy-host.example.com
#    ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
#    CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common
#</VirtualHost>

you just have to define

<VirtualHost www.mysite.com>
DocumentRoot /www/docs/abc
ServerName www.mysite.com
ServerAlias *.mysite.com
</VirtualHost>

what means "*"?
does it means that any
xxx.mysite.com com will be redirected to www.mysite.com,
or only mysite.com?
