Linux help (Ubuntu)

How to: Set up multiple ports on your apache server: (you may be getting the following error- NameVirtualHost *:80 Has No VirtualHosts )

look at your /etc/apache2/ports.conf

In that you should have the following for each port number:

  • NameVirtualHost *:{port}
  • Listen {port}

The reason for the error is you have set up a file in sites-available (with a soft link in sites-enabled)  at the beginning <VirtualHost *:800>

the 800 is the port number which need to be replicated in the conf file.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
#iface eth0 init dhcp
iface eth0 inet static
address 188.882.4.90
gateway 188.882.4.1

to add more simply add the following:

#secondary network interface
auto eth0:0
iface eth0:0 inet static
address 188.882.4.95
gateway 188.882.4.1

and another? add

#secondary network interface
auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 188.882.4.96
gateway 188.882.4.1
