using virtual hosts
First here is my under standing of virtual hosts is that you have one IP address and you can split that into multiple URL for example.
if you type in these urls you go to the same server but just to a different part of that server.
Is this right also if this is right how can i set this up on my server.
this is called name-based hosting.
just add the following sections to your httpd.conf file:
Note that you can also use IP based virtual hosting which means that different web urls correspond to diff ip adresses.
With name based hosting you will have to configure your DNS server to map each url name to the correct IP address.
Also put the following line above the 2 paras mentioned below
Will this work with dyndns web hostin service
I'm trying to do the same thing... so far no luck. It doesn't make sense... I am able to get to my server but just not to the name hosts assigned directories. It dosn't matter what I put in my name hosts documentroots, I always get the default error page.
The most common thing is that you have 1 dns-record to your page like..
Then if you use viritual directory for apache you can it can look like this..
If you use a dynamic dns software its possible to have completetly diffrent dns names also.
I have a similar setup, I'll register with dyndns and let you know if it works for me or not.
