Question

Virtual and 'non-virtual' hosts on the same droplet?

I’ve read through the directions on setting up virtual hosts on a Ubuntu-provisioned droplet a couple times, and then worked through them step by step a couple times (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts).

What I’m trying to set up is a “non-virtual” host at /var/www, with two virtual hosts inside at /var/www/infogristle/public_html and /var/www/monkeyfactory/public_html. The non-virtual host at http://trigger-treat.com works fine. Attempting to reach the virtual hosts results in the page for the non-virtual host to appear instead.

Do I need to convert my non-virtual host into a virtual host for this to work, or can you mix and match?

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind. I’ve given up on this droplet, and created a new one that uses Server Pilot. Worked on the first try.

When you first do your install, there is an Apache2 info page at /var/www/index.html. I was referring to this as the “non-virtual” host. Maybe I should have said the default host. Sorry. I’m trying to have:

domain 1 at /var/www/index.html domain 2 at /var/www/infogristle.com/public_html/index.html domain 3 at /var/www/monkeyfactory/public_html/index.html

However, only the page at /var/www/index.html is appearing.
