Virtual host not working externally

Postby leecooper2013 » 04. October 2014 07:29

hi my virtual host resolve locally but but not externally only the first container seems to be active.
My windows host file reads as follows and DNS is set to forward to my ip

# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
127.0.0.1 www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk
127.0.0.1 aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk
127.0.0.1 www.guildwebsites.co.uk
127.0.0.1 guildwebsites.co.uk
127.0.0.1 www.defenderofaszune.guildwebsites.co.uk
127.0.0.1 defenderofaszune.guildwebsites.co.uk

My Httpd reads

# Virtual hosts
Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

and my virtual host file reads as follows

NameVirtualHost *:80
#
# VirtualHost example:
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not
# match a ##ServerName or ##ServerAlias in any <VirtualHost> block.
#

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles" #only this directory is active externally all web addresses end up in this directory
ServerName www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk

</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/guildwebsites"
ServerName www.guildwebsites.co.uk
ServerAlias *.guildwebsites.co.uk

</VirtualHost>

Any ideas why these only resolve locally and why only the first container is active externally as i have spent hours working on this problem.

Thanks in advance

Hi when access locally i.e http://www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk display the index page in DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles"
http://www.guildwebsites.co.uk displays index page in DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/guildwebsites" when viewed from the server machine. but when veiwed via an external computer http://www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk display the index page in DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles" and http://www.guildwebsites.co.uk diplays the index page in DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles", in esscence the wrong idex page in the wrong location .

I cannot see an error, you should watch the access log as well as the error log for more information. It might be possible (very unsure about that), that the router (or whatever) does not pass the host name correctly to your Apache Server. The host name is part of the HTTP 1/1 Standard and was unknown in HTTP 1/0 (therefore namebase VirtualHosts require HTTP 1/1).

If there is kind of that problem, you should find a hint in the log files.

You have a mistake here:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles" #only this directory is active externally all web addresses end up in this directory
ServerName www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk

</VirtualHost>


It should be:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "e:/xampp/htdocs/aacomputersandconsoles"
ServerName www.aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk
ServerAlias aacomputersandconsoles.co.uk

</VirtualHost>

Wow!!

Did you see that:

That is an online attack! Someone tries to exploit your server!

Anyway, these are all "last" lines of access log? There is only one request to www.guildwebsites.co.uk:

Nothing else?

The error log is completely useless, are you sure you showed up the right one?

I cannot see any hint, the clue from "emperor" is wrong, there is no need for an ServerAlias.

Try to specify separate access and error logs for each VirtualHost. The current log is insufficient.

I have no idea. But it looks scary.

Without more information it is impossible to look further. Good luck, but this is to difficult.
