Can't configure VirtualHost for redmine

Hello Experts,

I want to configure virtual host for my redmine server, so our users can be able to access it from home.
Here is the URL
http://pm.pickup.org.il/

And here is VirtualHost config file

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName pm.pickup.org.il
        ServerAlias www.pm.pickup.org.il
        ServerAdmin webmaster@<YOUR-DOMAIN>.com
        DocumentRoot /var/www/redmine/public
        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_error
        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/redmine_access combined


 <Directory "/var/www/redmine/public/">
                Options Indexes ExecCGI FollowSymLinks
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all
                AllowOverride all
        </Directory>

    </VirtualHost>

Unfortunately, it not work. If i'm trying to access via pm.pickup.org.il receiving error. if adding port :3000 nothing happen at all.

Any ideas?

logs not looking that conclusive but it seems that there is a problem with the application and not the webserver. also check the error logs.

500 is application error. something is wrong in the code which webserver is not able to execute. try adding an html page instead of a code page as index file. it should be served. also reconfigure the logs so that you get more details on error.

I just installed a redmine server. So here is what I understand:

Redmine is a web server itself ( normally listening on port 3000) , it's not part of apache.  So you can't configure it like you did.

You can configure apache as a proxy for it. e.g.

LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so # enable mod_proxy

<VirtualHost *>

ServerName pm.pickup.org.il
ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:3000/

</VirtualHost>

you said "I want to configure virtual host for my redmine server, so our users can be able to access it from home.". I guess you must have a local network and will setup port forwarding on a router to forward http traffic to the redmine server?

There are other solutions becide using apache proxy. The question is do you need apache? If you don't have any other website running on the same ip, you can just stop apache, reconfigure redmine to use port 80, or config to forward external incoming tcp port:80 to the redmine server port 3000.


If you do have another website running on same ip ( with a different domain name), then apache proxy is the solution for you.
