    Hello HowtoForge,

    I hope this post finds you well.

    I've added my first website to my ISPConfig install. (2.2.4)
    The DNS resolves as it should but when I browse to the site, the default apache folder is served from /var/www/html instead of what is in the Vhost conf file. (/var/www/web7/web)

    Below is my Vhost's conf file, not sure if it helps diagnose or not.

    Thanks for any insight on what I've done wrong.



    Code:
    NameVirtualHost 96.225.168.6:80
    <VirtualHost 96.225.168.6:80>
     ServerName localhost
     ServerAdmin [email protected]
     DocumentRoot /var/www/sharedip
     <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
       RewriteEngine on
       RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^(TRACE|TRACK)
       RewriteRule .* - [F]
     </IfModule>
    </VirtualHost>

    Have you disabled the default site config that comes with your distro? Perhaps it's being hit first, and directing you there.

    In your console try ...

    cd /etc/apache2 (assuming this is your apache2 config directory)
    grep -ir "var/www/html" *

    And see if it returns the offending config file.

    If you were running Debian, you could run a2dissite and disable default

    Bingo!

    Thanks Jon.

    I thought that was it.

    I changed the httpd.conf file

    from <Directory "/var/www/html">
    to <Directory "/var/www">

    And it now shows the contents of /var/www when I point my browser to www.advantagecamps.org

    If I change it back to /var/www/html it takes me back to the apache root /var/www/html

    Thought that was the answer but no. :(

    I made the mistake of using a live IP instead of the local non-routable IP.

    Making that change squared things away.

    Thanks again for the assist.
    :)
