Apache2 VirtualHost config

Posted on 2009-04-06

Apache2 listens on wo ports. 80 and 443.

We have one .mobi domain that needs to run on port 80. (The first virtual directory).

All other traffic on port 80 needs to be redirected to a specific domain on port 443. (2nd and 3rd virtual directories respectively).

Basically the first virtual directory doesn't seem to work correctly because even the .mobi domain is being redirected to the domain running on port 443.
<VirtualHost www.domainname.mobi:80>

	ServerAlias domainname.mobi www.domainname.mobi

	DirectoryIndex m.index.php index.php
	<Directory />
		Options -Indexes
		AllowOverride All
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all
	</Directory>
 
	ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
 
	# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
	# alert, emerg.

Do youi have more then one IP adress? If not, use name-based virtual hosts for port 80, not IP-based:
NameVirtualhost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin info@xpandit.co.za
        ServerName www.domainname.co.za
        DocumentRoot /wwwroot/domainname/www/
        <Directory />
                Options -Indexes
                AllowOverride All
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all
        </Directory>
 
        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
 
        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel warn
 
        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined
        ServerSignature Off
        # Keep it simple; no need for mod_reweite; the port is always 80
        Redirect 301 / https://www.domainname.co.za/
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin info@domainname.co.za
        ServerName www.domainname.mobi
