How to add Virtualhost Apache2 on Ubuntu Linux Server( Beginners Guide)

apache2 virtual host add ubuntu linuxApache is the most commonly used web servers on many Linux Machines. For hosting multiple website on same server we need to create virtual host on Linux Machine. Below are steps I have implemented on my web server using Ubuntu 10.04 Linux Machine.

Go to site-available directory by :

cd  /etc/apache2/sites-available

Now copy default to another filename

For E.g.

cp default bikramkawan

Now add /Update certain parameter for your document root as below.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin [email protected]
DocumentRoot /var/www/bikramkawan
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
<Directory /var/www/bikramkawan>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
<Directory “/usr/lib/cgi-bin”>
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
# alert, emerg.
LogLevel warn

CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined

Alias /doc/ “/usr/share/doc/”
<Directory “/usr/share/doc/”>
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from ::1/128


Now your new filename for me (bikramkawan) to sites-enabled directory also.

Restart your apache server your site should be running now.
