What is wrong with my vhosts settings?


Recommended Posts

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

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.

It won't be US at fault it'll be apache if anything.. so no point moaning about the uniform server project..

What i'd do is delete each line of the virtual host config until you find the one causing the problem. At that point you can then diagnose whats going wrong.

I've had similar faults to yours - including apache not starting cos it can't access log files... total pain in the grass but you just have to keep at it. I had to delete 15 virtual host configs from my http.conf until i found the fault - good job CTRL Z works well in notepad++ lol
