virtual hosts problem on ubuntu 12.4


I am fairly new to this, so I probably missed something obvious.

I have a ubuntu 12.4 apache2 setup. I have two sites running, they are working fine. But when I try to set up a third one, the second site gets redirected to the third. If I set up a fourth it gets redirected to the last. My vhost config are all like:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

DocumentRoot /var/www/generationalbator/public_html

ErrorLog /var/www/generationalbator/logs/error.log
Loglevel warn
CustomLog /var/www/generationalbator/logs/access.log combined

<Directory /var/www/generationalbator/public_html>
	AllowOverride All
	Order allow,deny
	allow from all


Any ideas?

Glad it’s solved! Having separate files is not an issue, that’s how I do it, I’m thinking maybe one of the configs wasn’t enabled? Never mind though!

solved. I put them in one file, ran a2ensite and it functions!


are the virtual hosts stored in separate files in the sites-available directory? Have you run a2ensite on all configs?

Are you able to post all three virtual host files?
