I was doing an upgrade to Webmin and it upgraded Apache. Now i cant go to my administration service on port 80 for my trixbox. (they are on the same box) the phones work but the interface for management and configs is not accessible.

I believe it reset my virtual hosts etc... im new at the Apache thing and dont know much about it. Rather than mucking around to make things worst i thought id reach out for help. Does anyone know how the Apache config should look for Trixbox? the webmin site comes up fine on port 10000 so all is ok on that front...

Check your httpd config file has the link to trixbox in it. At the bottom of the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file you should have a line lie this:

Include /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/*

This allows the trixbox directories to be added to the config file.

the end of mine includes all this:
is this correct?


<VirtualHost*:80>
Include /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/*
NameVirtualHost 192.168.1.70
<VirtualHost 192.168.1.70:80>
DocumentRoot "/etc/trixbox/httpdconf"
<Directory "/etc/trixbox/httpdconf">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Nope. Change that to this:
=-=-=-=-=-= Cut Here =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
#<VirtualHost *:80>
#    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>

Include /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/*
=-=-=-=-=-= Cut Here =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Then make sure you have a trixbox.conf in the /etc/trixbox/httpdconf/ directory that has this:

=-=-=-=-=-= Cut Here =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
#Password protect /var/www/html/admin
<Directory /var/www/html/admin>
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Restricted Area"
   AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/wwwpasswd
   Require user wwwadmin maint
</Directory>

#Password protect /var/www/html/maint
<Directory /var/www/html/maint>
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Restricted Area"
   AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/wwwpasswd
   Require user maint
</Directory>
=-=-=-=-=-= Cut Here =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Include statement causes the trixbox.conf to be included when the httpd starts. Once these files are correct use "service httpd restart" to restart the web server. This should enable you t get to the trixbox page.
