Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

Postby dunhill » 09. March 2014 16:22

I have a new install of ubuntu and apache 2.2.22

it is running on a Virtual on Windows (192.168.0.2) server using virtualbox. The Ubuntu virtual ip is 192.168.0.31 in bridged mode
The router is configured so that a DMZ is defined to pass all traffic to the Ubuntu Server
WEBMIN is running on the Ubuntu server on port 10000 as well

internally I can access the web site at 192.168.0.31 with no issues from any computer on the same subnet
if I try to access via external IP address or DNS name I get the error Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

I can access the webmin interface from DNS name and external ip

There is only the one virtual server defined in apache with the following
Handles the name-based server on address *.
Address Any
Port 80 Server Name Automatic
Document Root /var/www


I know this is something basic but have not used Apache in 10+ years. Any help appreciated

The message

Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

is NOT an Apache message (and therefore not a Xampp message), it is a message from Microsoft IIS. Obviously you are running another Webserver on your (Virtual?) Server. Use Google for more information about "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)".

Thank You Nobbie.

You were quite right the Windows Home Server has IIS Running which has some services used to manage the server. When I moved the Virtual to a different computer the problem persisted.

Turns out the router had Upnp enabled and the Windows Home Server was using that to modify the settings I had been adding in the management of the router.
