Using examples from DigitalOcean, Rackspace and others, I have (repeatedly) setup a server to provide name-based Vhosts. I have several domains registered and forwarded to my current public IP address, but any attempt to access any of them via the web results in only the default host of last resort responding.
I added the server's public IP address and the domain names to another local computer OS's hosts file, and all websites appear to be functioning fine via local access.
Since this is my first stab at web hosting, I am limited in knowing what to try next. It seems that since LAN access functions OK (with the server info added to the hosts file) and from www the server is found and requests are processed, the settings are at least close to correct. I'm thinking there's a .conf file or some such that just isn't quite right. Or perhaps router port forwarding?
Any suggestions? Any code snippets I should add here to help clarify?
Update. Here is my Virtual Host
# domain: example.com # public: /var/www/example.com/html <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin email@example.com ServerName example.com ServerAlias www.example.com DocumentRoot /var/www/example.com/html LogLevel debug ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error-mydomainname.com.log CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access-mydomainname.com.log combined </VirtualHost>
