I'm used to Ubuntu, where there is a special file for containing the virtual hosts. But I'm getting the impression that in CentOS the virtual hosts are listed right in the main configuration file.
Can anyone confirm this?
EDIT - Tried this and it didn't work:
Added this to httpd.conf
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName example.com ErrorLog /var/www/example_apache_errors.log DocumentRoot /var/www/html/example <Directory /var/www/html/example/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
It did not work. The test page I created at /var/www/html/example/index.html is not showing up. Instead, the default page at /var/www/html/index.html is showing up.
EDIT: before anyone asks, yes, I'm restarting apache after ever config change.
NameVirtualHost *:80 is commented out by default in the config file and I didn't uncomment it. I believe that was the problem.
But I decided to use ip-based instead, like this:
<VirtualHost 69.175.xxx.xxx:80> ServerName example.com ServerAlias www.example.com DocumentRoot /var/www/example/ # etc. etc. </VirtualHost>
And this is working. We have 5 ip's so hopefully I can use this method to assign others in the future.
