Don't you think I tried that ? I looked all over the place and I can't seem to find what i'm looking for. Can someone please give me more info ? Help me a bit more than that please.
Apache 2.0 Vhosts with IP Addressing (FC3)
I agree that the Apache Server is a bit confusing, especially to someone who's a total noobie (like I am) and trying to run it through a linux distro for the first time. Plus, the configurations differ depending on your required use of it all.
Here is a link that will help you decide, and lists procedures for both Name-Based addresses for virtual hosting and IP-Based addresses, as well as the commands for the configuration file(s)...
Another thing I have learned is that things differ from what distro of linux you have, and if it has the Apache server bundled with it. (Plus I found that USERADD and ADDUSER are not different, they both use the same code).
I think that some people just want to run it to serve websites they are working on, for example, they have a few PCs on a home network with a router, and wish to access the apache server by using different names via IP addresses. This is what I want to do at this time, anyway, to learn, and then use the DNS later for actual registered domains.
I'd like to have addresses such as:
And have it end up in the users public_html directory.
Plus it helps to know what exactly you are using so I am posting mine here:
Fedora Core 3
Server Install (Bare Bones minimum, no GUI)
And also, I have seen how the PATHS and Directory structures DO differ depending on this info! So, you may be getting the right commands and steps to take, however, you MAY need to look about to find the correct paths and directories specific to YOUR systems setup.
I also wish to add that I would like to have for each of these sites a cgi-bin, which takes yet a bit more configuration and work I realize. And I also need to make the differentiation or similarity of using ADDUSER and creating these as a HOME path/directory and having Apache use that situation. Which also involves adding that user to the "apache" group, as stated in the config file I believe.
So, if ANYONE can help give THOSE straight-up, step-by-step directions, I and others after me would be GREATLY appreciative!
