Server Ignoramus needs someone to answer question as though they were giving grandma instructions
Posted on 2004-10-28
It is true. I cannot SSH in to my server and can only fumble through Webmin. This is what I need to do:
I have 6 domains on 1 IP address. I added the sixth domain tonight. I want to make this sixth domain the default domain for the IP address so when you type in the IP, that domain comes up. Right now the default domain is the first domain I set up at this IP back in February.
So, I HAVE TO DO THIS IN WEBMIN and need a literal step by step for an idiot.
This is what I found from searching around: I have heard "the default domain is strictly dependant on the order the virtual host blocks are setup in" which I guess means that the first domain on the IP becomes the default domain.
Someone told me to do this:
1. click on servers and
2. click on apache webserver and then
3. edit config files.
4. scroll down to the end of the apache config file to the virtual host directives and find the domain in question.
5. cut and paste the domain ahead of the virtual host block that contains the current default domain.
But this scared me when I got there. IS THERE AN EASIER WAY?
p.s. my question is not literally IS THERE AN EASIER WAY, but PLEASE help me with an exact step by step using Webmin on how to make a new domain added to an IP the default domain of that IP ahead of all the earlier domains. :)
