Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache Virtual Host Config issue
Date Mon, 14 Oct 2013 07:58:22 GMT
Hi Ammar,

usually you don't put "Listen" directive inside your vhost configuration.
And you cannot have an IP address like 
"IP Addresses are canonically represented in dot-decimal notation, which consists of four
decimal numbers, each ranging from 0 to 255"
( )

If you what specify an IP address you should choose between the addresses configured on your
On the other hand, why do you need to specify a different IP address?

As far as I see now you have your apache up and running on port 8080 and has bind all available
IP addresses. Which for your test should be perfect (IMHO). 

May be your problem is only that you want connect to your server using an IP address not available.
An IP not configured on your server.
