I was following the Virtual Hosting Services (Book 2.6)
It is helpful in the beginning; at about
View the DTML Method by clicking on its View tab, and you will see something like the following:
Absolute URL http://localhost:8080/vhm_test
this ends, though.
View vhm_test/index.html bring this result, yes.
But the next line:
Now visit the URL http://localhost:8080/vhm_test. You will be presented with something that looks almost exactly the same.
is wrong. It still has to be .../vhm_test/index.html
Same applies to the following line. The example further down suffers from the same problem:
index.html needs to be added
The whole passage about supplementing /etc/hosts for apache is useless, because not needed. localhost:8080 will do, and without 127.0.0.1 localhost in /etc/hosts almost nothing will work. (In short: the whole passage is not needed)
Rewriting the Apache rules as described will lead to 'Access Forbidden'; at least here it does. Only way around: mod_proxy.
That the author happens to be rather incompetent is reflected on that page:
... VirtualHostRoot/$1 [L,P]
[P] stands for proxy. So without, the whole thing will not function.
While mod_rewrite is well described, the necessity of mod_proxy is not mentioned.
May I suggest you have the page corrected; since a newbie won't find the way through this half-brew.
