Im new to apache configuration and would be really glad if someone helped me with the following.Im running apache on a virtual private server, running the debian operating system.
In /etc/apache2/sites-available, i have two virtual hosts defined,site1.com.conf and site2.com.conf. In /etc/apache2/sites-enabled,i have a symlink to site1.com.conf . The virtual hosts are defined as follows:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin firstname.lastname@example.org ServerName site1.com ServerAlias www.site1.com site1.com DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php DocumentRoot /var/www/site1 <Directory /var/www/site1> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> LogLevel warn ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/site1_error.log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/site1_access.log combined ServerSignature Off </VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin hostmaster@wharfage ServerName site2.com ServerAlias www.site2.com site2.com DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php DocumentRoot /var/www LogLevel debug ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/site2_error.log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/site2_access.log combined ServerSignature Off <Location /> Options -Indexes </Location> Alias /favicon.ico /srv/site2/static/favicon.ico Alias /static /srv/site2/static # Alias /media /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages/django/contrib/admin/media Alias /admin/media /var/lib/python-support/python2.5/django/contrib/admin/media WSGIScriptAlias / /srv/site2/wsgi/django.wsgi WSGIDaemonProcess site2 user=samj group=samj processes=1 threads=10 WSGIProcessGroup site2 </VirtualHost>
However, a strange thing is happening. Im able to navigate to www.site1.com as expected. It loads the content in /var/www/site which i have defined as the DocumentRoot in site1.com.conf. But if i navigate to www.site2.com,instead of loading index.html which is present in /var/www, which is defined as the DocumentRoot for site2.com.conf, as shown above, it loads the content in /var/www/site1. The url in the address bar remains www.site2.com. So, i have the following two questions :
Q.1) Why is www.site2.com showing the contents of /var/www/site1 when the DocumentRoot for it has been defined as /var/www ?
Q.2) Since, site2.com.conf does not have a symlink in sites-enabled, how come im able to navigate to www.site2.com ?
Sorry, if my questions sound noobish, but ill be really happy if someone could explain this.
