Httpd Host

Posted on  by admin

However, the site is working if I make /etc/hosts entries on the server and on a client (eg laptop). Also if I type 192.168.8.133 on all devices on my network it shows the website. There is a detail I am missing and for the life of me I can't figure it out! Versions 1.1 and later of Apache support both IP-based and name-based virtual hosts (vhosts). The latter variant of virtual hosts is sometimes also called host-based or non-IP virtual hosts. Below is a list of documentation pages which explain all details of virtual host support in Apache HTTP Server. Before you configure the repository over httpd make sure it is working on the local host where is it hosted. Install your package using yum, replace packagename with the package you want to install and locate on mypackagedir/repository: # yum install packagename Installing and configuring httpd.

Using Notepad++, open C:wampbinapacheApache2.2.11confextrahttpd-vhosts.conf.
You should see something very similar to this:
# Virtual Hosts
# If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
# machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
# use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
# IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
# Please see the documentation at
# for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
# You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host

# Use name-based virtual hosting.
NameVirtualHost *:80
#
# Almost any Apache directive may go into a VirtualHost container.
# The first VirtualHost section is used for all requests that do not
# match a ServerName or ServerAlias in any <VirtualHost> block.
<VirtualHost *:80>

What you want to do is add VirtualHost blocks that will point to your local websites. No need to be fancy here, just these two line blocks should do the trick. For esoteric reasons, it is recommended you keep the localhost block at the top of the line. By the way, these two liners seem to do just fine without quotation marks.

I once copied a set of blocks that look very similar to these VirtualHost blocks from the Drupal site. I did not notice that the closing tags were missing a forward slash. Guess what? The blocks did not work and it took me quite a few hours to recognize what was right under my nose. Copy and paste if you must, but try to understand what's going on at the same time. That's my advice.
At this point you may be wondering where mysite1, mysite2 and mysite3 may be located in your directory structure.

Httpd Hosts

It's like this:

Look for the following notes in the default settings file at C:wampwwwdrupal-6.12sitesdefaultdefault.settings.php:
* The configuration file to be loaded is based upon the rules below.
* The configuration directory will be discovered by stripping the
* website's hostname from left to right and pathname from right to
* left. The first configuration file found will be used and any

Apache Virtual Host Ssl

* others will be ignored. If no other configuration file is found
* then the default configuration file at 'sites/default' will be used.
* For example, for a fictitious site installed at
* http://www.drupal.org/mysite/test/, the 'settings.php'
*
* 2. sites/drupal.org.mysite.test
*
* 5. sites/drupal.org.mysite
*
* 8. sites/drupal.org
*

It is important to understand these comments in order to be able to properly set up a multisite Drupal environment. Once you begin to step through the Drupal files, starting with index.php, using the Eclipse debugger, things will become clearer. I promise.

In this article, we will show you how to set up multiple SSL Certificates on a CentOS with Apache using a single IP address only. In general, a website administrator is restricted to use a single SSL Certificate per socket with an IP which will cost a lot of investment to the company. This restriction may lead them to buy multiple IP addresses for HTTP’s websites for their domain hosting or buy hardware that allows them to utilize multiple network adapters.

This is allowed by an extension to the SSL protocol called Server Name Indication (SNI). Most current desktops and mobile web browsers support SNI. The main benefit of using SNI is the ability to secure multiple websites without purchasing more IP addresses.

Configuration

Make sure the mod_ssl security module is installed and enabled so the Apache web server can use the OpenSSL library and toolkit:

Execute the Below Commands

Generating SSL Certificate Signing Requesting Files for your Domains

It is recommended to install commercial SSL certificates when we are deploying in a production environment. Or, we just generate self-signed SSL certificate which is used for development purpose or staging a website using the below commands

Editing the ‘ssl.conf’ Apache Configuration File

When we are using a commercial SSL certificate, it is likely that, the signing authority will include an intermediate CA certificate. In that case, we create a new ‘/etc/httpd/ssl/ca.crt’ file and paste the contents of the Intermediate CA into it, then we needed to edit the ‘ssl.conf’ configuration file and uncomment the following line.

So the Apache web server can find your CA certificate.

Test the Apache configuration

Host

Restart the Apache service for the changes to take effect

Open https://mydomain1.com and https://mymydomain2.com in your favorite web browser and verify that SSL certificates are installed correctly.

After this setup and restarting Apache, you can access http’s site with a browser that supports SNI. If you have setup correctly, then you will be able to access the site without any warnings or problems. You can add as many as websites or SSL Certificates as you need to use the above process.
