Apache is functioning normallyor
Hey, it worked !
This IP is being shared among many domains.
The cause of this is that either
1) the value the domain resolves to *at your computer* is not matching the value apache is using
2) OR the virtualhost is not included in the apache configs.
For 1) to check this, simply go to Admin Level -> Show All Users, look for the domain, and see what IP it's set to use.
Next, you need to figure out what IP the domain resolves to. It's best to use an external server like dnsreport.com or some other free lookup services to determine the IP the domain resolves to. These 2 IPs need to match.
** Note that if you've recently changed the IP of your domains, you'll have up to 4 hours of waiting before the new IP propogates to you. So seeing the above pages is *normal* for doing IP changes. To lower this time, lower your TTL before making the IP change (see link below)
For 2) There are a few things to check. The user httpd.conf files are:
and this file must be "Include"ed into your main /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf one of two possble ways, depending on your setup.
a) if you've got custombuild (usually apache 2.2) then check the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.
You should see the line:
Include conf/extra/directadmin-vhosts.confsomewhere near the bottom of the file. Then in the /etc/httpd/conf/extra/directadmin-vhosts.conf file, you should see the Include line for the user httpd.conf
Include /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/username/httpd.confIf you *don't* see that, you can rewrite all of the apache confs with:
in your /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf for this setup.
b) if you're using customapache (usually apache 1.3), then it's the same idea, but the user httpd.conf
Include /usr/local/directadmin/data/users/username/httpd.confwill be directly in your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.
Also, the /usr/local/directadmin/conf/directadmin.conf should hold:
If you're on a LAN, then your incoming device IP would be your LAN IP, and not the external IP.
This would relate to the IP the VirtualHost has.
If you are running on a LAN, ensure you've follow all steps from this guide:
Specifically, steps #4 and #5. Step 4 in the lan guide will link your LAN ip to the external IP, adding the LAN IP to the VirtualHost.
You can check which IP is used for incoming connections by creating
/var/www/html/info.phpand adding the code
<?php phpinfo(); ?>and view it through Apache, and checking the variable:
_SERVER["SERVER_ADDR"]The IP listed there is the IP that Apache sees. It's what you'd need to add to your VirtualHost.. either with the linked IP system, or by changing the IP that the domain resolves to.
