Problems creating Virtual Hosts on Centos 7

Discussion in 'Apache' started by Baldur2630, Apr 10, 2017.

    I have a VMWare Server and I use this to create websites for my clients before uploading them to their host.

    I've been using CentOS 7 and Apache 2.2 and it's worked fine. Now I have to create sites with Joomla 3.6 and it wants a version of PHP which isn't available on CentOS 6, so I installed a Centos 7 Server.

    I read several documents on how to achieve this, but I'm getting nowhere fast. This is what I did :

    1. I created a folder in /var/www/html called mysite.
    2. I downloaded Joomla 3.6 anc copied all the files into this folder.
    3. chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/mysite
    4. chmod -R 755 /var/www/html
    5. In /etc/httpd/conf.d I created a folder mysite.conf
    6. I copied the <VirtualHost> Section from my CentOS 6 to this folder as follows :
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName mysite.corp.networkingtechnology.org
    DocumentRoot /var/www/mysite
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^(/mysite/.*) /www/mysite$1
    ServerAlias mysite
    ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/mysite-error_log
    TransferLog /var/log/httpd/mysite-access_log
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    7. I have my own (Windows) DNS Servers so I entered mysite into the DNS with the IP Address of so it resolves to mysite.corp.networkingtechnology.org

    It's always worked before, but now I am unable to access the site with a browser.
    Am I missing something here? What am I doing wrong?

    First thing I see is that the folder you're using /var/www/html/mysite is not the same as the one you've defined in your vhost /var/www/mysite

    OMG, you're right. Isn't it incredible, you can look at something 50 times and still not spot a stupid error. I fixed it straight away.

    The bad news is that it still doesn't work!
