View Full Version : [SOLVED] Apach2 with subdomains and a reverse proxy for Subsonic

February 11th, 2012, 07:50 PM
I just setup an Ubuntu 11.10 server with LAMP and am looking for a little help. My goal is to start hosting 2 websites using subdomains and eventually expand to more. When I browse to mydomain.com over the Internet, everything works fine. I see the first page I setup. In addition, mydomain.com:4040 goes to Subsonic. I would really like to have subsonic.mydomain.com resolve to my Subsonic application. I have added subsonic.mydomain.com as an A-record with my hosting company and edited my /etc/hosts file to include subsonic.localhost
When I browse to subsonic.mydomain.com, nothing loads.
Here is what my main website file looks like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName localhost

DocumentRoot /var/www
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
<Directory /var/www/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
<Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
# alert, emerg.
LogLevel warn

CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/"
<Directory "/usr/share/doc/">
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from ::1/128


And here is what my subsonic reverse proxy file looks like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
ServerName subsonic.localhost

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need to change the ServerName in you subsonic vhost file.

Should be:

ServerName subsonic.mydomain.com

You may also need to allow access to the directory.

I made quick how-to (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1920715) which may help.

Pay close attention to the <location /> directive. Without it you may get an error like "can't access / on server..."
