First time LAMP and domain setup on CentOs. Previous experience of this is in Ubuntu. Working on a dedicated server package of my local ISP. They installed default CentOs 6.2 and redirected my domain to the server. Pinging mydomain.com works fine to reach the server's IP.
I have successfully installed LAMP on the box using this howto explanation. All seems fine.
I have edited /etc/hosts:
I have also edited the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and added the following at the end of the file, while keeping the rest default:
NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> DocumentRoot /var/www/html ServerName localhost </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName mydomain.com ServerAlias www.mydomain.com ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org DocumentRoot /var/www/html/mydomain.com <Directory "/var/www/html/mydomain.com"> Options Includes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All allow from all </Directory> ErrorLog /var/www/logs/mydopmain.com.default.log </VirtualHost>
And i also ran
chmod -R apache:apache /var/www/html
as a final attempt to get things going.
Both /var/www/html and /var/www/html/mydomain.com contain a basic index.php so that i can test that everything works.
The problem i get is when i try access the domain via the browser i get an "The connection has timed out: The server at mydomain.com is taking too long to respond."
Ubuntu used the sites-available and sites-enabled, so i am not sure if i am missing a setup somewhere or if something is missing from the ISP side?
Does anyone know how to setup virtualHosts on CentOs 6.2 for apache2?
Thank you, David
