Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 : Forward All Requests To Directory ?

Feb 9, 2010

i have a web site and i need to forward all requests to the same page. Basically i would like to show a maintenance page while we are working with our database behind the application and in the meantime i would like to redirect all url in the root directory as following :



i tried to perform the action using mod_rewrite in this manner :

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule . http://www.mysite.com [L][code].....

The webpage at http:[url]....has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 SSL Forward To Another Port?

Dec 1, 2010

I have an apache2 server on a Debian box that I am using as the reverse proxy for my sites that are sitting behind it and everyone is happy. But now I want to be able to access my vmware server console from outside the network without exposing the vmware server port to the internet. So I did this I created a new virtual host for apache and it looks like this (edited for the real world)

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName server.my.domain
# RewriteLog "/var/log/apache2/rewrite.log"
# RewriteLogLevel 9


So here is what I want to be able to do. I want to be able to punch in [URL] and have the reverse proxy just take care of everything else without having to punch in the port number or anything else. I'd also like to have if possible the ssl on the vmware box just pass through the proxy back to the end user. If that isn't possible and I need to create a new ssl for the apache box then that is ok too. I have googled this and looked at several other sites but I'm still a little bit lost.

Ubuntu Servers :: Add A Directory In Adition To Default 'www' To Apache2?

May 11, 2011

I have been searching the web and Ubuntu forums all day looking for an answer to what I initially thought would be a simple thing to do. I have set up a lamp server and started creating my network site, however was not long before I ran into an issue with fire fox not allowing me to access locally linked files that are shared on the network which works fine in IE. after several hours of trying to find a work around, I have been unsuccessful in creating a link that would work in both IE and FF.
so I got this bright idea see, to just make the website include the network shared content, unsharing them of course and simply adding them to my Apache server, well the more I read the more confusing it all became. do I use simlinks or do I create a server for each location/hard drive?
I really need a how to for big dummies on adding additional directories to Apache similar to adding virtual directors to IIS for windows.

Networking :: Forward All Http/https Requests ?

May 12, 2010

I have a server (Fedora 12) setup at a client's datacenter and the network is setup to allow me ssh access into the server, but prevents me from opening any connections from the server. However, I need to make http and https request from the server. What I'd like to do is forward all http/https traffic through another machine outside the network.

I've been looking at the documentation for ssh and the various options there and have gotten so far as to enable initiating an ssh connection from the client network back to my machine, but am not sure where to take it from there.

Here are some of the commands I've used so far:


I'm attempting to bind port 80 to be forwarded through the local machine. I assume I use "ssh -R" to create a dynamic tunnel to forward requests but I must be missing something.

By the way, root login via ssh is disabled.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Wireless Router To Forward Ftp Requests To Computer?

May 18, 2010

I'm trying to make my wireless router always give me the same ip address every boot ( I do not have a static ip address from my isp.

Everything I've tried from online help has made my internet break and I'm not even sure what exactly I should be searching for on google.

Ultimately, I'm trying to get my wireless router to forward ftp requests to my computer which shares the network with an xp machine. I think this is the way to go about it.

Server :: Cannot Access /var/log/apache2/*: No Such File Or Directory

Aug 24, 2009

I am trying to access log file which located in /etc/log/apache2. I could get into the directory using `su`. I was able to run ls command under the directory and everything was file. I could run a command,

ls -d /var/log/apache2/*

However after I switched to my account, I got an error. sudo ls -d /var/log/apache2/* ls: cannot access /var/log/apache2/*: No such file or directory

I want to use this command in a bash script to get a list of log files. Should I write the script as root and run it as root?

Server :: Set Process To Output To Apache2 Directory?

Aug 13, 2010

it seemed like the most accurate place. Also apologies for any inaccurate terminology, I'm a bit new at this. Running Apache2 on top of Debian 5.0

Anyway, I have irssi set to output logs to a folder accessible by my web server. User permissions are all set up, so it writes to the folder just fine, but when I access the server index in a web browser (i.e., page that says "index of /[directory] at the top) I cannot see the the directory or the logs that irssi is making. I can ssh in and see the folders and files in the terminal, so they are being created. How can I set it so these are viewable through the web server? I tried restarting the server, no effect.

Software :: Use PEAR From Its Shared Directory In Apache2?

Mar 8, 2011

I'm running the turnkey linux version of joomla and I need to use PHP's mail functionality to send a notification email from a page (separate from joomla content) . PHP's native stuff is rather plain and I find myself needing the functionality of PEAR. So I've installed PEAR via aptitude, but it has installed to /usr/share/php.

how do I include these files from php scripts? Firstly, the files are owned by root, the www-data user doesn't have access. It also appears that the permissions on the files may need to be modified. Some php files don't have the execute flag (shouldn't they)? I recognize the point of having a centralized location for updates and sharing, so I don't want to just copy the files to my web directory (/var/www).

Programming :: Apache2 VirtualHost Non-recurring Directory?

Sep 16, 2010

I didn't know exactly where to put this, but here it goes:For the record, I have Apache2 on Ubuntu.OK so I have a "svn" subdomain for SVN repositories. The repositories are actual separate repositories, not a big one for all. So I'm using SVNPath not SVNParentPath (please don't suggest this as a possible fix).

The problem is I want to be able to list the repositories (or even put a blank page for that matter) at svn.mydomain.com. All repositories have a svn.mydomain.com/myrepository path with a VirtualHost for each. So when I create another VirtualHost just for the / path, it overrides all the SVN VirtualHosts, as it covers / and all sub-directories.

I would like a way to set that VirtualHost to affect just the root directory, without the sub-directories. Or to make the SVN VirtualHosts override it. Either way, is this possible? What approach should I take? Thanks!

Ubuntu Servers :: Forward All Web Traffic From One To Another?

Jun 2, 2011

My kind isp had set up a authoratitive dns server that can't be cancelled that points to the wrong ip address. Hence I need to take all the traffic going into server A at the ip address aa.aa.aa.aa and send it all onto server B at ip address bb.bb.bb.bb. After much head scratching, I managed to achieve it as follows:- On the server at ip address A, set up following :-

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d aa.aa.aa.aa -j DNAT --to bb.bb.bb.bb
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -d bb.bb.bb.bb -j MASQUERADE

Software :: Restart Apache2 Process Every 10 Mins To Clear /tmp Directory?

Aug 31, 2009

I have been working on this for a few hours now and still haven't been able to track down whats going on. I just switched servers and put a fresh debian install on with apache2 + custom suexec + php5(fcgi). now when i upload a file to the site it wont upload, so i tracked down the issue. its the /tmp directory that root tmp. its at 100% so i restart the /etc/init.d/apache2 process and the /tmp directory is automagically cleared to 20% used and i can upload again. so i figure ok its got to be a setting. i looked in all the conf files conf.d the php5 conf files and no where do i have a /tmp directory set. so i think OK I can build a cron to clear the tmp directory every 10 mins till i find the issue, but alas, when i go into the tmp directory There are NO files to delete!!! wtf. holy crap. and all that goodness, this is crazy, how can you have a tmp directory that is not being written to, from all i can see, so i think ok it might be a hard link, i checked, in all root and sub root directories no hard links to tmp, no soft links to temp either. and if i sit in my /tmp directory and do a df -h after some uploads its going from 20% so 23% and up, but i do ls -alh and nothing, then ls -al and watch bytes, nothing , so this is very strange. has anyone encountered something like this? is it possible that this is a hard link thats hidden somewhere or some other extreme function i have never heard of?

Ubuntu Servers :: Configure Squid To Forward .flv Files On The Fly?

Mar 5, 2010

I am using Squid Proxy Server alongwith Dansguardian, dhcp3 and ClamAV on my local network. Everything is working fine except for .flv files like [URL]. The problem is that Squid wants to download the whole .flv file first to its cache and then serve it to the client.

It has an advantage that the whole video loads at once on the client's browser but that is not what our users want.

What they want is that these files load on the fly as they do on a normal internet connection. How do I configure squid to serve .flv files on the fly to the client PCs?

Ubuntu Servers :: Firewall / Router Forward Ports

Sep 8, 2010

I have linux server setup on a network with 2 interfaces. One (eth0) is connected to the regular network and the other (eth1) has a DHCP server and transparent web cache listening on it. The machines connected on the eth1 side are on a different subnet and the linux server is there gateway. Untrusted machines are introduced to this network to keep them isolated.

This isolation works well, too well. There are a small set of resources on the regular network I would like to make available to machines on untrustworthy network. I think I need to use iptables but alas I've had no luck in piecing together the command I need (in one case looking myself out and having to physically reset the machine).

Ubuntu Servers :: IP Forward Masquerading At Boot Time?

Sep 13, 2010

I am not a complete GNU/Linux newbie, each day I discover how little I know of this wonderful OS. The title of this post is actually a question for which I already have an answer, however, I can't seem to figure out why this happens. In order to enable ip_forwarding, I always enable it the same way, by issuing an:
#echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ipv4_forwarding.
I don't enable forwarding at boot time on purpose, I prefer to do it manually if the server crashes.

The thing is, I always write rules for iptables in order to enable it to NAT my packages through the router. However, last night, I forgot to load the proper iptables script, and instead, used a script I am currently tweaking. In this script, no rules are listed for both the forward chain and nat table in the POSTROUTING chain. Since forwarding was working (to my surprise, I might add) this could only mean, that the kernel default forwarding policies include masquerading. Is there a way to verify this?

Ubuntu Servers :: Take Apache2 Away From Root?

Feb 4, 2010

I think my apache2 is owned and running as root. I don't know if I installed it like a noob a while ago but I would like to secure it now especially since I just figured out how setup virtual hosts and I may want to eventually let people host sites on my server and I obviously don't want to have to give them root access. How can I confirm that apache2 is running as root and how do I take it away from the root user?

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 - 98 - Address Already In Use

Aug 29, 2010

I am using Ubuntu Server 10.04 64bit. I am getting an Apache2 start up error after I setup my certificates and configure Apache2 for HTTPS. At the point on start up where I need to type in my certificate pass code I get a lockup due to the Apache2 process being in a hung state. I reboot if needed and switch to console tty2. When I type in the command.


I get the following error.


To correct the problem I do this.


From the output of the command above I look for the apache2 process and make note of its process ID. Then, I kill that process ID. For example, the command below has an apache2 process ID of 1131.


Next, when I run this command.


The apache2 server starts up and asks for my certificate password, accepts it when I type it in, and runs perfectly fine afterward.

Fortunately this instance of Ubuntu Server is running inside a VMWare virtual machine. I can just "pause" the virtual machine if I need to rather than going through this crude and tedious start up process too frequently.

Crude and tedious are feelings I'm having too frequently lately with Ubuntu Server.

Ubuntu Servers :: Setting Up Apache2 With SSI The *right* Way?

Jan 5, 2011

So I've got a box running 10.04LTS Server, and on it is running the latest build of Apache2.It's a home box - a server set up for the sole purpose of experimenting and having fun with. So far, the fun is mostly breaking it over SSH and then fixing it when I get home and can log into it via recovery.What I really want to do is to get this box set up with Apache2 the way it seems like it was designed - with Apache2 serving web pages from its default file location (/var/www) but also being able to log in and upload/download new web page files to that directory over SCP or SFTP. I keep hitting snags.Here's what I've done so far:

1. The server is set up in a DMZ at home and my router updates a Dynamic DNS record; so far I can SSH into it no problem.

2. Apache is working. I get my "it works!" page when I enter either the IP or the dyndns domain name.

3. SFTP is sort of working. I can log on using WinSCP and see the files and download them, but I can't upload to the default directory with my normal login.

Here's my issues: 1. I want to set up Apache *correctly*. To me, that means leaving it pointing to the default directory, but still being able to upload to that directory. I have not (and probably will not) enable the root account. I've set the permissions to 755. I've tried chown'ing the directory, but then it seems I can't view the webpages.As a workaround, I created a www folder in my default user home directory and pointed Apache2 there in the 'default' file in /etc/apache2/sites-available. The changes read as follows:

DocumentRoot /home/username/www
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks[code]...

That gives me a workaround for the default directory SFTP issue, but I would rather learn what I need to do to have it set up and working with default values.

2. You may notice I added Includes under the Options. My goal is to get server-side includes working. But they aren't. I have some existing webpages my work has set up - I using these as a template to use to adapt a flash movie I made to a specific resolution, as well as to learn how to optimize my flash for a webpage. Our webhost uses virtual hosting; I am not yet doing so. I'm not sure what they've done to set up the server-side includes, but the files they are using are all html files - no shtml. The include files themselves have either .htm or .html extensions. All of the pages have .html extensions.

My reading said that I need mod_include installed in Apache2. Where can I check to see that it is installed? Where do I need to add the Includes under Options?Is it in the right place? And finally, where do I need to add XBitHack on to enable it? This is the method that Apache suggests, but the documentation offers no clue as to where to put it. Most of the documentation out there refers to apache.conf, but that's the Apache 1.3 way of doing things.I really just want this to be set up according to the defaults as much as possible.I want to have a good working knowledge of Apache and of how to set it up and configure it, but dang it if it isn't a frustrating process.

Ubuntu Servers :: Removed Apache2 But It's Still There?

Mar 8, 2011

I'm very baffled by this, I was setting up my mumble server since my old one had a hard disk failure. I was messing around with web registration but decided I didn't want it since this server is really only for a few friends.

So I removed all the mumble-django and apache2 packages required for web registration, but for some reason apache2 is still on my system and listening for connections.

terminal output below to further clarify.

Ubuntu Servers :: Forward Traffic From A Domain To Another Server Behind A Firewall

Jan 29, 2010

I have a server on my router on the DMZ. All outside traffic goes to it. This server has Apache running and the domain mysite.com resolves to the the DMZ web server. I have a second server on the LAN that also has apache running. I want to set up another domain, myothersite.com to resolve to the second server on the LAN. Since the main server is on DMZ I have the DNS A records for myothersite.com pointing to the public IP that the DMZ is on.

How do I get myothersite.com to resolve to the second webserver on the LAN? What configuration do I need to do on my DMZ server so it routes traffic for myothersite.com to the other server on teh LAN? Do I use BIND DNS? If so please advise on how to set that up. BIND DNS seems confusing and I having trouble knowing how to configuring it. Is there another option besides BIND?
