Hello Guys,

Can anyone help me resolve this issue. Tried all changes in apache.conf and http-vhost.conf by adding virtual hosts. but still my domain resolves to Nas admin page.
when i try to see with //public IP/virtual folder/ i can see my pages but not with my domain url.

Have you also mentioned the port? For example:

The Virtual Server requires the access using the domain name, exactly as configured along with the Virtual Server, ie. if want to reach your Web page as www.whatever.domain you must configure www.whatever.domain and point to the virtual folder.

If you don't want your primary Web Server (listening on the IP address) you have to edit the index.php to redirect to the www.whatever.domain:80, or create some custom code (in the Web share, either named index.php or index.htm) showing or doing whatever. Removing the existing index.php which does the redirection will not be permanent, the Web Server start-up will force an index.php again (unless it already exits, or an index.htm exists).

Does anyone know of an updated step-by-step based on a third party web server known to run well in Docker, and which has a real user friendly design app that requires little or no programming (interactive graphic element design), while still producing advanced HTML5, Java Script and Ajax code through a "compile" process?

yeah this thread seriously needs a revamp. the very first post ought to be reflective of a modern up to date guide. not an excessively long series of questionnaires by everyone trying to work things out without a single proper reference to work with. with a proper guide most of it would not need to be quized too often :mrgreen: at least

i gathered some examples of what the guide ought to look like. i'd do it but i'm not confident enough to advise fully on this subject, as i'm rather newbie at this :mrgreen:

the site covers mysql and phpmyadmin, but it leaves out other crucial stuff for setting up a site like your

covers only mysql database creation to then install wordpress

if your going to open your qnap to the internet as a web server, you need to know how to properly secure it. i only found this article on the subject

qnapcloud gives you an easy freedyns for qnap use, though i managed to get my website online using other freedyns without resorting to using myqnapcloud service before. but if people want to use it there's this guide

a few useful links

[ QApache + PHP ] WebServer and more

Wordpress. Yes there is a qpkg but i found that downloading then dumping into web root seemed to work just as well.

[ LetsEncrypt ] Free SSL/TLS Certificates

ffmpeg binary static

[ QNginx + PHP-FPM ] Web Server and more [embedded]

if you want to buy a domain name i recommend namecheap :mrgreen:

*notes: Yes app center does have some of these core apps like apache and nginx, but for preference i like relying on steph releases since they tend to be more up to date usually.

in the current web server setting for qnap, we now have an option to use either apache or nginx for webserver. so an updated guide needs to cover setting up for both options. apache relies on htaccess for security configurations.
