HTTP: Configure a virtual host

Share this link

Install the “Web Server” package group:

# yum groupinstall -y "Web server"

Edit the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and uncomment the following directive:

#NameVirtualHost *:80

At the end of the same file, uncomment the following stanza:

#<VirtualHost *:80>
# ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
# DocumentRoot /www/docs/dummy-host.example.com
# ServerName dummy-host.example.com
# ErrorLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log
# CustomLog logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log common
#</VirtualHost>

Don’t forget to replace dummy-host.example.com by the name of your webserver.

Check the validity of the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file:

# httpd -t
# service httpd configtest

Check the virtual host(s) configuration:

# httpd -S
# httpd -D DUMP_VHOSTS

Add a new rule to the firewall:

# iptables -I INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

Save the firewall configuration:

# service iptables save

Activate the httpd service at boot:

# chkconfig httpd on

Start the httpd service:

# service httpd start

Check the httpd service:

# yum install -y elinks
# elinks http://localhost
