I want to deploy my project in virtual host in CentOS running server. I have this

<Directory />
#change value of next line from none to all
    AllowOverride none
    Require all denied
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin root@localhost
ServerName project.com
ServerAlias www.project.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/project

<Directory /var/www/html/project>
        DirectoryIndex index.php
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted

In the httpd.conf in the /etc/httpd/conf folder I also have this   localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1         localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
#    localhost.localdomain localhost host.server4-245.com
#::1          localhost.localdomain localhost host.server4-245.com   www.project.com      www.project.com

In the hosts in the /etc folder but when i try to access http://project.com/ in the browser I get :

This site can’t be reached

project.com’s server DNS address could not be found. Search Google for project ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

after altering this I restarted the httpd using

systemctl restart httpd

When I do this in ubuntu I happened to do one step that I cant do in centOS. The step below:

sudo a2ensite httpd.conf

When I search for the equivalent of this command in centOS there is none.

What could be missing in my config? Could it be that I was not able to reload the httpd.conf?


when I try to access using IP like When I have the virtual host config I cant access when I comment out the config I can access it.


When I rune netstat -autnp | grep "\:80" | grep LISTEN

I get :

tcp6 0 0 :::80 :::* LISTEN 6905/httpd

  • You need to add an IP address and hostname that you want to use. – Michael Hampton Dec 6 '17 at 5:43

You are accessing hxxp://project.com/ but you only have www.project.com in your /etc/hosts file. you need to add an entry for project.con too   www.project.com project.com      www.project.com project.com
