Hello to all!
Im new to the forum - Been using xampp for 3-4 months now and as i became more experienced, i thought, how about hosting multiple websites.
I'm hosting my website (works fine) at my home (XP SP2 Box), just by using xampp.
The domain i have is hosted at DynDNS.com, free account.
My mate wanted to make a website for him, so i thought I could host it for him.
My DynDNS.com domain is http://www.joldas.ath.cx
and i wanted to make one for him -> http://www.yiouldassis-stratos.ath.cx
So, i searched google, how to add multiple websites.
I found different topics on this forum, added the virtual hosts on my vhosts file but it seems that there is a small problem.
First, let me explain you, what's the directories
F:/var/ -> Xampp Folder
F:/var/htdocs/ ->Documentroot Folder
F:/var/htdocs/vhosts/ -> Vhosts folder (for both domains)
F:/var/htdocs/vhosts/joldas_ath_cx/ ->Folder for my domain
F:/var/htdocs/vhosts/yiouldassis-stratos_ath_cx ->Folder for my friends domain
*******I LEFT THIS LIKE IT WAS********
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
So, i added these lines to my vhosts file :
CustomLog @firstname.lastname@example.org_log common
CustomLog @email@example.com_log common
In both folders, I added a simple index.html only to see if it does the routing correctly
Restarted apache and tried them...
I typed in my browser http://www.joldas.ath.cx/ and the it showed me the contents of F:/var/htdocs/vhosts/joldas_ath_cx
But, when i typed http://www.yiouldassis-stratos.ath.cx it showed me again the contents of
instead of the contects of F:/var/htdocs/vhosts/yiouldassis-stratos_ath_cx
So, i believe that there is a problem with the configuration...
Or, with the DNS? I really have no idea.
Some more info...
My internet Connection is a PPPoE - Dialup Broadband Internet
Dynamic IP address Assignement - DHCP cares for the box that has the xampp server installed. Static Lan IP address - Ports are forwarded successfully...
Ask me everything you need to know, so you could help me out!
Thanks in advance...
