Virtual host not working. Redirects to dashboard

Postby luismartin » 22. June 2017 20:40

I'm having problems setting up a local website. Despite the corresponding virtual host is defined, something seems to point to the document root directory, then to the dashboard.

This is the part of my httpd.conf which includes the virtual hosts config:

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

httpd-vhosts.conf, without comments:

Code: Select all
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/opt/lampp/htdocs/mysite"
    ErrorLog "logs/"
    CustomLog "logs/" common

And the /etc/hosts file:
Code: Select all   localhost   my-pc


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

I already managed to deactivate the redirection to the dashboard, and now when I try to enter or, the document root files are indexed. It doesn't matter to me if they're indexed here, what I want is to serve from /opt/lampp/htdocs/mysite

I can reach this directory if i instead enter http://localhost/mysite, but this is not what I want. Plus I restarted Apache everytime I made any change.

Any help?

What is with the error_log? Also try to run "/opt/lampp/bin/httpd -S" in a terminal, what does it tell about your VirtualHosts?
