Domain/Vhost Problem.

Postby digitalmikey » 10. June 2008 18:51

Hello everyone. I've been successful with getting my domain to work with xampp however I can only get to work while still points to my old server. Here is my current vhost:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot C:/xampplite/htdocs/digitalmikey
<Directory "C:/xampplite/htdocs/digitalmikey" >
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "C:/xampplite/htdocs/digitalmikey/cgi-bin/"

Also my domain is hosted at Godaddy. I updated the A Record and CNAME accordingly on their site. Is this a problem with my vhost or with the way my Total DNS is setup with Godaddy?

Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.

Hello and welcome digitalmikey.

The vhost looks ok. But then, just a minor typo, which I don't see, can mess you about.

Some thoughts and queries:
1. " while still points to my old server." So, the new site has never worked, from any location?
2. Where actually is the new site? Local PC/network?
3. The DNS records can take a while to update and propagate for www. Also, you might wish to flush your local DNS cache. Windows = ipconfig /flushdns at command prompt.
4. I get a ping back from, from Makes sense? The actual site, ie http://... doesn't load atm ,,, just for info.
