What have I done wrong with my vhosts setup? 

The first site I set up is running well in vhosts. No problems other than occasional crashes (starwarswisdom.com).  


Then, to develop a second wordpress site (richfieldmall.com), I created this second website on C:\UniServerZ\www.  

Then I created a new vhosts location via the controller interface (stop Apache, then go Apache > Apache vhosts > Create... so easy!).


Then, I cut and pasted the site over into the new, corresponding directory under C:\UniServerZ\vhosts.


Was that the wrong way to do that?


My current configuration points traffic for the second site, richfieldmall.com, toward the default Uniform Server test page, under /www, instead of over to /vhosts



My settings are as follows:




# This file provides server security limiting access to the localhost only.
# Comment next four lines to deactivate. (Allows external access)

#Order Deny,Allow
Allow from all
#Allow from
#Allow from ::1

# To allow execution of cgi scripts in this directory uncomment next two lines.

AddHandler cgi-script .bat .exe .pl .cgi
Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks

# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
# END WordPress

 CustomLog logs/richfieldmall.com-access.log common

If any other information is needed, please let me know. Advice, suggestions, links -- any info is welcome!

I researched this over and over and was unable to remedy this issue. As a result, we are switching our site to a paid hosting platform.

Sad to see such a promising project -- easily offering a grander future than WordPress, etc. -- wallow in apparent inattention(?).

I'm having the same problems with the Aug2019 release.


It worries me that there has been almost zero discussion about vhosts not working (worked fine in the last version) and not in this new release.


I guess it's time to move on.
