Subject:   another option - redirection instead of a dynamic link page

Instead of having a page that links to all of your virtual domains couldn't you redirect to them? I haven't tried this but I don't see why it wouldn't work.


Basically, follow the directions in this article to add each of your virtual domains (both of them - the NameVirtualHost and Listen). Then add this to the mod_rendezvous directive in your httpd.conf file:


RegisterResource "JoesFilters.joe" "/virtualRedirect.php?port=9000"
(add one of these for each of your domains replacing the port number for each)


Then make a file named virtualRedirect.php in the specified location that contains this php code:


<?php
header('Location: http://'.$_SERVER[SERVER_ADDR].':'.$_GET['port']);
?>


Remember that for the redirect to work you MUST place the opening php tag at the very beginning of the document. A single blank space or line break before the opening php tag will result in an error.

    Hi M,

    I know it's been awhile but could you elaborate wher exactly this "Then make a file named virtualRedirect.php in the specified location that contains this php code:"

    should be located?

    Perhaps you also know in 10.3.9 if there are better ways?

    Cheers,

    W

    PS: I just want to use RendezVous to test my sites locally and X-test with old PC running IE.
