    Sub Domains & Multiple Domains


    I have successfully set up an Ubuntu Web Server. It runs ddclient to update my IP address at, and I have verified that it is accessible via the internet (outside of my home network). My next goal is to set up one or two sub domains using, and to host another website using I know it has something to do with virtual hosts, but I have been confused in my research. I guess in a previous version of Apache, the file to change is httpd.conf. However, in Apache2, it doesn't appear to be that file. I have posted a copy of the file which I think it is, 000-default:

    NameVirtualHost *
    <VirtualHost *>
            ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
            DocumentRoot /var/www
            <Directory />
                    Options FollowSymLinks
                    AllowOverride None
            <Directory /var/www/>
                    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                    AllowOverride None
                    Order allow,deny
                    allow from all
                    # Uncomment this directive is you want to see apache2's
                    # default start page (in /apache2-default) when you go to /
                    #RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/
            ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
            <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
                    AllowOverride None
                    Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
                    Order allow,deny
                    Allow from all
            ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
            # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
            # alert, emerg.
            LogLevel warn
            CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined
            ServerSignature On
        Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/"
        <Directory "/usr/share/doc/">
            Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride None
            Order deny,allow
            Deny from all
            Allow from ::1/128
    Is this the correct file to modify in order to host sub domains and multiple domains. Is there a tutorial or something that I can look at for some help? Or maybe somebody can give me some tips.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
