Hello There, I'm new to server management in Ubuntu. I have a VPS at Linode powered by Ubuntu 13.10 Server edition. I run Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop edition on my laptop and I have a LAMP stack setup with a web directory that works out of an assigned folder in my home folder. I'm trying to achieve this setup: A new Virtual host setup with an IP address different from the localhost or 127.0.0.1, I tried using 126.96.36.199. So under /etc/apache2/sites-available, I created 188.8.131.52.conf and this is the content of the file: Code: <VirtualHost *:80> # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless. # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly. ServerName 184.108.40.206 ServerAdmin [email protected] I edited the /etc/hosts file as follows: Code: 127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 B-613 220.127.116.11 localhost 18.104.22.168 B-613 22.214.171.124 127.0.0.1 # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters 127.0.0.1 productsearch.ubuntu.com Then in a terminal window, I ran a2ensite 126.96.36.199.conf and it asked me to run service apache2 reload which I did. Now when I try to run a2ensite 188.8.131.52, it says Site 184.108.40.206 already enabled. When I try to visit http://220.127.116.11, it doesn't work. Looking at the above setup, what have I or haven't I done, and how can I get it working? I appreciate any help.
