    Setting up name-based virtual hosts on Apache Apache/2.4.6 (Ubuntu 12)

    SETUP:
    Apache/2.4.6
    Ubuntu 12.x


    I am having trouble setting up any virtual hosts on my LAN. I want to have multiple name based virtual hosts. The first example vhost i am setting up is days.com. Unfortunately, when I type that address, Apache/2.4.6 does not redirect the address to the vhost.


    Heres my days.com.conf (enabled) in /etc/apache2/sites-available:


    Code:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
            ServerName days.com
            ServerAlias www.days.com
    
    
            ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
            DocumentRoot /var/www/zzz
    
    
            #ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
            #CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
    
    
            <Directory />
                    Options All
                    AllowOverride All
                    Require all granted
            </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>
    I enabled it using:
    Code:
    sudo a2ensite days.com.conf
    sudo service apache2 reload
     * Reloading web server apache2
    If I run the following command I get this response:
    Code:
    apachectl -S
    VirtualHost configuration:
    Code:
    *:80                   is a NameVirtualHost
             default server localhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf:1)
             port 80 namevhost localhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf:1)
             port 80 namevhost days.com (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/days.com.conf:1)
                     alias www.days.com
    Heres my /etc/hosts file setup:
    Code:
    #127.0.0.1      localhost
    #Virtual Hosts
    127.0.0.1       days.com www.days.com duck.dev
    days.com        days.com www.days.com
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-l   ocalnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    What am I doing wrong?

    FYI:
    The only two conf files in /etc/apache2/sites-available and /etc/apache2/sites-enabled are:
    Code:
    000-default.conf
    days.com.conf

    Remove this line:

    Code:
    days.com        days.com www.days.com
    The hosts file is only used for ip address to host name resolution.

    Re: Setting up name-based virtual hosts on Apache Apache/2.4.6 (Ubuntu 12)

    OK. I removed that line, but my vhost is not working yet. Here's exactly what i did:
    Removed this line from /etc/hosts :
    Code:
    days.com        days.com www.days.com
    Reloaded apache2.4.6:
    Code:
    :~$ sudo service apache2 reload
     * Reloading web server apache2                                                                                                                                                                              *
    IN my browser:
    1. Cleared cache
    2. Typed www.days.com in address field

    FYI: I also tried:
    Code:
    sudo service apache2 restart
    * Restarting web server apache2

    What does it say after you try to access days.com ?

    Run this after you try to access it:

    Code:
    tail /var/log/apache2/access.log
    I think that's right, I don't use Apache, so I'm not 100% sure.

    Re: Setting up name-based virtual hosts on Apache Apache/2.4.6 (Ubuntu 12)

    Im accessing the address from another box on my LAN. Its a mac. The Ubuntu server has a static IP while everything else has a dynamic IP. I'm actually kind of amazed it's taken me this long to get this working. If I type the address of the server in, then put the relevant directory, I can see the site located in www directory.

    Which machine were you modifying the hosts file on?
