I just went with Steadcom's VPS and they are great. I am setting things up and it's going pretty well, I have to dust off my linux/server knowledge that I haven't used in a couple of years.
Anyway I'm creating a virtual host.. I will have about 10 in the end, but right now I only have one domain IP Pointing to my new server. My registrar is NamesDirect.
When I create the virtual host, I can no longer access subdirectories directly. My Virtual Host directory is, say, /var/www/html/newdir
If I try to reach http://www.domainname.com which has been configued as a virtual host, that comes up correctly from the directory /var/www/html/newdir and works fine.
But if I try to reach http://myipaddress/newdir I get a 404 page not found error. Looking at the log, it's trying to reach /var/www/html/newdir/newdir so it's putting in the virtual host redirect even for just hitting the subdirectory directly.
Is this normal? Do I have something configured wrong? I have another domain that I have changed to IP Point to the VPS but until it propogates I won't be able to test having 2 virtual hosts.
Also.. I have not set up DNS on my VPS. I don't really understand it, and IP Pointing has always worked for me when I ran my own server form my home so I was just going to do that. But I wonder if this could be one of the problems.
