I'm really lost and my native language is not English so It's difficult to understand some of the complicated Apache Doc pages.
I've set up a Apache 2 webserver on an old Macintosh (Mac OS X 10.4.11, but also on a GNU/Linux box with same config files, but of course not at the same time ;) ).
The DocumentRoot is /Users/enrique/Sites, I know it's not the best but it works and I don't have permissions error when I mount the shared folder on other computers in my LAN.
I set up a free domain at co.cc let's say it is mysuperdomain.co.cc
I've also set up a ZoneEdit DNS account. I made a new zone called "mysuperdomain.co.cc" and then using an app called DNSUpdate with my Zoneedit data to update my dynamic IP (it usually changes twice a month with my ISP). It works fine and I can use ssh, VNC, FTP and of course my apache webserver from anywhere. I tried to VNC the Mac from a computer shop in Germany (I live in Spain) and I was great... and It saved me as I could recover some documents...
I usually ssh my server and edit the config file from there, or I use webmin if I'm in a Windows box and I don't have a SSH client.
Well, this is the problem: I had configured a virtualhost by hand first, and then again with webmin (maybe I was missing something) with the address doc.mysuperdomain.co.cc and DocumentRoot /Users/enrique/Sites/data/doc because I want to take it apart from my other folders.
Well, If I type doc.mysuperdomain.co.cc on my browser it takes me to the default Index page.
Why doesn't it take me to the right folder?
I don't know what to do. I think buying a "full" domain is now a bit expensive (and that doc folder is for educational purposes). With a, say, .net or .com personal domain will I be able to use subdomains with my free zoneedit account?
If someone can save me I'll be the happiest man on Earth...
I say I'm lost. This is what I have in my httpd.conf
NameVirtualHost mysuperdomain.co.cc:80 <VirtualHost doc.mysuperdomain.co.cc:80> DocumentRoot /Users/enrique/Sites/doc ServerName mysuperdomain.co.cc </VirtualHost>
I'm not using an external httpd-vhosts.conf, shall I use it?
I had tried putting another Vhost with the main domain (mysuperdomain.co.cc) pointing at the documentroot (Users/enrique/Sites), with no luck.
I think it's something I typed wrong (Apache doc is quite difficult to understand, and some pages are not updated in the spanish version...)... but maybe using a free co.cc domain is the problem. I'll cross my fingers and wait that is a configuration error.
