I have installed the subsites module(s) and everything works wonderfully, however, I am am unable to access the subsite other than in the CMS. When I click on Draft Site, it is trying to go to http://staff.(serverIP address)/eastern/?stage=Stage and returns Bad Gateway. I'm certain that I have something configured incorrectly somewhere but am not sure where to look. The main site opens fine. It's not live yet, but the url I use to access the main site it is http://localhost (or IP address if remotely)/eastern and that opens fine, so I'm guessing that the url of the subsite would be http://staff.localhost.eastern/ but that doesn't work either. I did add that to the hosts file but no success. Any suggestions or insight into what I am doing wrong?

Could you post the lines you added to your host file. I also think you also need to setup a virtual host (on apache at least). If you could post the code you added to your virtual host as well that would be useful.

I added the following to the hosts file:
127.0.0.1 staff.localhost

Our network manager will create a virtual host on apache for me. Do I also need another .httaccess file in the subsites directory?

Willr,
I found a previous post of yours regarding setting up multiple sites on one server (http://www.silverstripe.org/archive/show/166015#post166015) and found that to satisfy our needs. All I need to be able to do is to have a public site, and an internal staff intranet, and each needs to have a different template. I thought that subdomains was the only way to have separate templates, but your solution for two installations/databases sure seems easier, although the subsites was pretty neat. Thanks for your help.

Hi Willr. I'm hoping you can help me - we have our two separate silverstripe sites (and databases) set up, plus one non-silverstripe website, all on one server. We want to use virtual hosts (not subdomains like I was trying before), but are running into a problem. The non-silverstripe site (vh3.eastech.org) which uses index.html as its home page, comes up fine when the AddType and AddHandler lines are remmed out. When the AddType and AddHandler lines are not remmed out, the non-silverstripe site comes up with the Download File box. The silverstripe sites come up with:

"Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

The error log says that "Request exceeded the limit of 10 redirects..." which I have read has something to do with the rewrite settings.

I've occasionally gotten the silverstripe sites to come up with just the directory listing, and when I click on index.php, the page opens with no formatting.

On the original server, everything works fine when we access the sites just using the http://servername.eastech.org/eastern, or /staff, or sumfun, but we want the url to be staff.eastech.org, or eastern.eastech.org, or sumfun.eastech.org.

We're trying to get this to work on a cloned server. It's apache 2.2.3 on a suse linux server, which basically means that the apache stuff isn't where you might expect. Here is what is in the httpd file (with xx.x.xxx.xxx as the ip of the server):

# /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file. It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.2/> for detailed information about
# the directives.

# Based upon the default apache configuration file that ships with apache,
# which is based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob
# McCool. This file was knocked together by Peter Poeml <poeml+apache@suse.de>.

# If possible, avoid changes to this file. It does mainly contain Include
# statements and global settings that can/should be overridden in the
# configuration of your virtual hosts.

    ### Virtual server configuration ############################################
    #
    # VirtualHost: If you want to maintain multiple domains/hostnames on your
    # machine you can setup VirtualHost containers for them. Most configurations
    # use only name-based virtual hosts so the server doesn't need to worry about
    # IP addresses. This is indicated by the asterisks in the directives below.
    #
    # Please see the documentation at
    # <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.2/vhosts/>
    # for further details before you try to setup virtual hosts.
    #
    # You may use the command line option '-S' to verify your virtual host
    # configuration.
    #
    #Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf

    NameVirtualHost xx.x.xxx.xxx

    <VirtualHost xx.x.xxx.xxx>
    ServerName internet.eastech.org
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs

    <VirtualHost xx.x.xxx.xxx>
    ServerName vh3.eastech.org
    DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs/sumfun
    </VirtualHost>

    # Note: instead of adding your own configuration here, consider
    # adding it in your own file (/etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local)
    # putting its name into APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES in
    # /etc/sysconfig/apache2 -- this will make system updates
    # easier :)
