Apache vhost configuration for wildcard subdomain support

Discussion in 'Apache' started by theextelligence, Mar 6, 2017.

    I am having a hard time running my application (built on laravel 5.4) on a wildcard subdomain that I have setup on my local machine (running Apache 2.4.18 on Linux Mint 18.1)

    So, I have setup a vhost (domain.app) and a subdomain (sub.domain.app) for it and my apache vhost file looks like the following:

        # This is for the primary domain (domain.app)
        <VirtualHost *:80>
                ServerName  domain.app
                ServerAlias www.domain.app
                ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
                DocumentRoot /var/www/html/test/domain.app/public
                <Directory /var/www/html/test/domain.app/public>
                    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
                    AllowOverride All
                    Require all granted
                <IfModule mod_dir.c>
                    DirectoryIndex index.php index.pl index.cgi index.html index.xhtml index.htm
        # This is for the subdomain (sub.domain.app)
        <VirtualHost *:80>
                        ServerName domain.app
                        VirtualDocumentRoot /var/www/html/test/%0/public
                        ServerAlias *.domain.app
                        <Directory /var/www/html/test/sub.domain.app/public>
                                <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
                                        Options -MultiViews
                                        RewriteEngine On
                                        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
                                        RewriteRule ^ index.php [L]
    Code (markup):
    This works fine for all of the following urls:

    - http://domain.app
    - http://domain.app/login
    - http://domain.app
    - http://sub.domain.app/login

    But since, I want a wildcard subdomain, meaning I do not want to hardcode sub.domain.app in the vhost but want something like anything.domain.app so I tried to replace

    <Directory /var/www/html/test/sub.domain.app/public>


    <Directory /var/www/html/test/%0/public>

    I get the following results:

    - http://domain.app (works)
    - http://domain.app/login (works)
    - http://domain.app (works)
    - http://sub.domain.app/login (404 Not found, The requested URL /login was not found on this server.)

    Please can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance
