Hi, still stupid here, but I’ve run out of time today.
Was messing around today, installed wordpress straight from wordpress.org into the base NS, copied the owncloud.conf over to a new wordpress.conf, edited with wordpress of course, and dumped the wp files into a folder next to owncloud, browsing to testserver/wordpress, wordpress works great.
Was looking at the vhosts some more. Wondered to myself… why do I need to have entries in dns - hosts? This is standalone behind a gateway.
But here’s the thing… I think that in order to use vhosts it’s necessary to use server alias or e-smith will not create the vhost confs. I think that when I originally created the server aliases those confs for the ibay directories were left over even though I deleted the aliases and made entries in hosts. The reason I say this is that the 00default:80.vhost has all the test domains listed in it but if I browse to any domain I always get the index.html that is the last listed domain in that 00default file.
So nothing works like I posted above anymore and I’m even more confused.
So, I’m making notes for myself here… and tomorrow, if I have time, I may recreate those entries in server alias to see what happens.
My end goal here is to spin up an NS instance in Google cloud, with a wordpress installation hosting 5 sites for 5 domains with email on a single ip… but this is getting out of hand…
