In Apache2 is it possible to set multiple ServerNames in one VHost?

I want to setup a "wiki" vhost for an internal wiki.

My network has a ".lan" suffix. How do I get Apache to answer both "wiki" and "wiki.lan" on the same vhost?

Use both the ServerName and ServerAlias directives in your virtualhost definition. You would do something like:

<VirtualHost *:80>

    Servername wiki.lan 
    ServerAlias wiki



See Apache Docs – ServerAlias Directive.

    Does it make a difference which name is specified at ServerName and ServerAlias? Can it be exchanged?

  • ServerName is the one used when apache can not figure which host to use. E.g. when connecting using an IP address instead of a hostname. Commented Sep 1, 2021 at 17:08

Add the other names with ServerAlias.

You can use any of those 2 formats or a mixture:

ServerAlias aaa.example.com bbb.example.com ccc.example.com

ServerAlias ddd.example.com
ServerAlias eee.example.com
ServerAlias fff.example.com

The directive is valid only in VirtualHost section.

See: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#serveralias
