Subdomain, Virtual Host and mod_proxy
I have a home web server running Ubuntu 11.04 and Apache 2.2.17.
Recently, I was able to setup a subdomain - beth.rightintoit.net successfully, and run a web page from /var/www/beth
I found a site about Webmin in a Virtual Host via a Proxy . I tried to follow the instructions to set this up.
This required enabling/installing mod_proxy. I think I used
$ sudo a2enmod proxy
The problems I have now are:
1. When I go to http://beth.rightintoit.net, it loads the default page from /var/www/index.html, rather than /var/www/beth/index.html
2. I put a phpinfo.php into /var/www/beth/ to try to see if mod_proxy was enabled. Now, if I try to call that, I get a 404 - page not found error.
I assume the problems are associated with a ****-up in my configuration of mod_proxy - cos that's all that's changed since it last worked.
3. Also, in the configuration of webmin to run via the proxy, it says the webmin config should have referer=apachehost. I changed that to referer=rightintoit.net - did I interpret that correctly?
Appreciate any advice!!
3. With regard

It's difficult to really see what would be the problem without seeing your configuration.

Thanks. A re-install got stiff back working.
