Fwd: Re: server configuration for local and internet priority



Some research suggests that this might be a tux configuration issue.
Can anyone suggest what might need to be changed where?

Consolidated summary:

Linux is Redhat shrike (9) with all up2date.
Tux is the primary server on port 80
Apache is the secondary server on port 8080
Apache is setup with a virtual host xenodochy.org pointing to /var/www/html/xenodochy.
The linux root is obtained by entering http://linux.

Everything appears to work fine using Opera 7.50P2 on the linux machine (networked to the windows machine).
http://www.xenodochy.org takes me to the internet.
http://xenodochy.org takes me to the local copy on the linux machine.

Using Opera on the windows machine, entering http://xenodochy.org actually retrieves the content of http://linux, although the address bar shows http://xenodochy.org.

The tux log is showing GET /
The apache access log is showing GET /
followed by
GET /icons/blank.gif HTTP/1.1" 304 0 "http://xenodochy.org/";
(when it's going for the directory information for / (at /var/www/html)

It looks like tux is either not translating the request for xenodochy.org to directory /var/www/html/xenodochy.

How do I get tux to support the VirtualHost setup in apache?

Any suggestions?

Hi,

Thanks again for your suggestion.  It works on the linux box, but I get
something strange that indicates there is still a configuration problem.
When I enter http://xenodochy.org on the windows machine, it returns to me
the same directory as when I enter "http://linux";, but the address line
says "http://xenodochy.org"; instead of "http://linux";.

(/etc/hosts includes "127.0.0.1 linux xenodochy.org")

When I look at /var/log/httpd/access_log, it shows that the request is
coming from the windows machine at 192.168.0.1 and is asking for
"http://xenodochy.org";.

192.168.0.1 - - [06/Mar/2004:08:47:27 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 1504 "-"
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.50  [en]"
192.168.0.1 - - [06/Mar/2004:08:47:28 -0500] "GET /icons/text.gif
HTTP/1.1" 304 0 "http://xenodochy.org/"; "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE
6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.50  [en]"
192.168.0.1 - - [06/Mar/2004:08:47:28 -0500] "GET /icons/blank.gif
HTTP/1.1" 304 0 "http://xenodochy.org/"; "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE
6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.50  [en]"
192.168.0.1 - - [06/Mar/2004:08:47:28 -0500] "GET /icons/folder.gif
HTTP/1.1" 304 0 "http://xenodochy.org/"; "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE
6.0; Windows NT 5.0) Opera 7.50  [en]"

Apache appears to be reading and displaying the wrong directory.  It's
displaying the DocumentRoot directory in the root web site instead of the
DocumentRoot directory in the defined VirtualHost.

I've spent a long time searching with google, but I have not found a
solution (that I recognize).

Any suggestions as to what may be preventing apache from returning the
requested virtual host directory or page?

That did the trick on the Linux machine.
Exactly what I wanted.

Thanks!

Now I can start dismantling the kludgy W2K IIS setup.

i think that your issue is a dns/hostname resolution one.

both xenodochy.org and www.xenodochy.org resolve to 63.246.192.33, so that's where your linux box will try to go by default (regardless of the hostname you enter).

if you put xenodochy.org on the "localhost" (127.0.0.1) line in your /etc/hosts file your machine should then go there (to the local machine) when you enter the xenodochy.org name. it should still go out to the 63.xxx hosted machine when you enter www.xenodochy.org .

[this setup will leave it so that if an external user enters either xenodochy.org or www.xenodochy.org they will (properly) go to yor 63.xxx hosted machine.]

Subject: server configuration for local and internet priority

Hi all,

I'm new to linux, and I'm looking for some configuration help.

I have copied one of my domain web pages to my shrike box in
/var/www/html/xenodochy.org, and I have setup a virtual host in
httpd.conf  as xenodochy.org.

<VirtualHost xenodochy.org>
     ServerAdmin webmaster@xenodochy.org
     DocumentRoot /var/www/html/xenodochy.org
     ServerName xenodochy.org
</VirtualHost>

When I type the URL in my browser (Opera), I would like
"http://xenodochy.org"; to show me the local copy from my linux box
and  "http://www.xenodochy.org"; to show me the internet copy.

When I run Opera on the Linux box with http://xenodochy.org, it
takes me  out to the internet rather than to the local copy.

My ISP has two virtual host definitions (with and without the www.)
in  their httpd.conf file.

One complication is my linux box is not my internet gateway.
Because my  satellite service is not supported on Linux, my linux
box has a fixed  local IP and goes through ICS on a W2K machine.
My previous development  was using IIS, but I want to get off IIS
and onto Linux.

Can anyone tell me what configurations I might need to do where so
that my  browser looks for web pages locally before going out to
the internet?  It  should find http://xenodochy.org on the linux
box, but not finding  http://www.xenodochy.org there, it should go
out to the internet.


Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
