NameVirtualHost - IP not resolving to ServerName

Postby MegaMav » 09. January 2010 19:01

Alright, Im at the end of my rope :D

Ive come here for help, if possible, because im not sure what else I can do.
Or, even if what im trying to do is possible.

I secured a domain name, and forward all traffic from my domain registrar to my webserver at home by IP.
I have Apache 2.2 set up, with virtual hosting.

from httpd.conf

Code: Select all
# Virtual hosts
Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf


from httpd-vhosts.conf

Code: Select all
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "C:/XAMPP/HTDOCS/"
ServerName [MYHOSTNAME].com
</VirtualHost>


Now, shouldnt the IP address be replaced/resolved by [MYHOSTNAME].com when users are redirected?
Am I doing something wrong here, or is this not working as I'm expecting it to?

Namebased vhosts are only working, if the browser is using a hostname for the request.

Thanks for the fast response, in short, is there anything reasonable I can do to get the IP to resolve to the named address virtually through apache?
Im using Windows 2000 Advanced Server.

An ip request is always going to the first defined vhost (the default host). There is nothing in Apache which is doing a reverse lookup.
