I have added 2 virtual hosts to my apache2 conf file as below:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/site1
    ServerName www.site1.com
    ServerAlias site1.com

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/site2
    ServerName www.site2.com
    ServerAlias site2.com

I then got the error after restarting apache i get:

[warn] default VirtualHost overlap on port 80, the first has precedence

Searched google and they said to uncomment the line below, so I did:

NameVirtualHost *:80

Restart, and now I don't get the error, but both sites go to the first site.

running Centos5. How do I fix this problem?

You definitely want NameVirtualHost uncommented. That tells your server to server different virtual hosts based on the Doman Names used to reach it. That's why you see all requests go to the first site when it's removed.

    Yea, I have done that and it still doesn't work.

  • Does it not properly serve up site2.com even with it? It really looks like your warning is just stating that your first VirtualHost is the default site for unmatched names. Which is essentially just how Virtual Hosts work. Dec 17, 2009 at 14:08

    After uncommented that line, i don't get a warning and both sites still go to site1

  • Is it possible that your browser has just cached the content from site1 under site2's domain? Try clearing your cache or doing a proper refresh. (ctrl+F5) Dec 17, 2009 at 16:07

I already fix this proble with CWP

just go to /usr/local/apache/conf/sharedip.conf

check this put * in your ip server

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName yourdomainserver.ltd
    DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/htdocs
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
        suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody
<Directory "/">
        AllowOverride All
        Allow from all
        Order Deny,Allow

then go to /usr/local/apache/conf.d/vhost.conf and be sure of each virtualhost looks like this

# vhost_start chango.com.ve
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName yourdomain.ltd
ServerAlias www.yourdomain.ltd
ServerAdmin [email protected]
DocumentRoot "/home/yourdomain/public_html"
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/yourdomain/public_html/cgi-bin/
# Custom settings are loaded below this line (if any exist)
# Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/yourdomain/yourdomain.ltd/*.conf    
# vhost_end yourdomain.ltd

this works for me!
