Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

With apache, i want a wildcard so my domains can go to the appropriate folder. www should be ignore/go into root. How do i setup the rules?

         'domain.com' to go to '/var/www/prj/www/root'
'ANYTHING.domain.com' to go to '/var/www/prj/www/ANYTHING'

Currently my file is

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName  domain.com
    ServerAlias *.domain.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/domain/www

Try this:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName domain.com
    ServerAlias www.domain.com
    DocumentRoot /var/www/prj/www/root

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName wildcard.domain.com
    ServerAlias *.domain.com
    VirtualDocumentRoot /var/www/prj/www/%1
