Can't make vhosts to work :(

Posted August 27, 2013 1.8k views
I am successfully using WebMin to a ubuntu server I have, but I cannot make vhosts to work in a new CentOS server. If I have only the default server installed in /var/www/html when I try to see my server using the IP address, I see the /var/www/html/index.html (that's correct). When I create a new vhost, although I setup directory and servername, the whole server (even with ip address) looks to this folder. I tried to find what it is but I cant. I noticed that the option " New file under virtual servers directory" is missing from the add new vhost form. Any idea?

Have you tried following the steps outlined, here: How to Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

This tutorial shows you how to set up a new directory, how to grant the correct permissions, how to add content to a new page, how to turn on virtual hosting, and how to, if needed, set up local hosts. Virtual Hosts are used to run more than one domain off of a single IP address and allows you to run multiple sites off of a single DigitalOcean droplet. This tutorial describes how to set up virtual hosts with Apache.
@Pablo: Since he's using Webmin, editing any config files manually would only make things worse.

Try asking in the official webmin forums (might want to search there if a thread already exists before creating a new one):
