Greetings.

I have been long running a small business Apache server and recently updated from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.4. There was a learning curve with porting the configuration, but - i managed to get it working.

I am currently running Apache 2.4 on Windows x86.

One issue still persists :

in httpd.conf:

ServerName www.blah.com
DocumentRoot "c:/HTTP/blah.com"

The DocumentRoot is set to a default website - specific to the mother company. So good so far.

in httpd-vhosts.conf:
we have serve 4-5 domains, each with distinct content.

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "c:/HTTP/hello"
ServerName www.hello.com
ServerAlias *.hello.com
<Directory "c:/HTTP/hello">
Require all granted
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "c:/HTTP/goodbye"
ServerName www.goodbye.com
ServerAlias *.goodbye.com
<Directory "c:/HTTP/goodbye">
Require all granted
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

all of them experience the same error.
when i type in the address goodbye.com instead of www.goodbye.com i get redirected to the www.blah.com website.
I i type www.goodbye.com i get the correct content.

I tried:

ServerName goodbye.com
ServerAlias *.goodbye.com

ServerName www.goodbye.com
ServerAlias goodbye.com

ServerName goodbye.com
ServerAlias www.goodbye.com

Nothing worked...
I'm surely missing something - as this is repeatable behaviour and totally predictable. Can someone please help me out ?

Update: After some more research, i discovered it redirects any www-less vhost not to the main documentroot, but to the first virtualhost website.

So, somehow, Apache does not recognise the www-less domain it is requested that...

DNS is set up correctly (i checked) - there is a www.goodbye.com (sample) specified in the DNS file.

Nevermind - i was the browser's cache Smile)

So, finally fixed after setting the vhost like this

ServerName www.hello.com
ServerAlias hello.com

Cleared the cache. Restarted the server. It now works. Presto!
