No, sorry. Pitty, QNAP does still use a crappy old thttpd for the administration instead of using Apache ... there this would become feasible.

This is a rather old thread, yet I seem to be unable to resolve the underlying issue and would appreciate some help to find how to get the virtual host show my websites instead of the index.php in /Web.


I have two sites using WordPress, one in the default location /share/CE_CACHEDEV1_DATA/Web/WordPress and the other one in a subdirectory of /share/CE_CACHEDEV1_DATA/Web/wp-tmd/wordpress.

The virtual host is running with ports 8082 and 8083 pointing to these directories, each one having their respective index.php at the ready.

When connecting from the web, the result is always showing the /share/CE_CACHEDEV1_DATA/Web/index.php content (which I have edited to show the same lovely picture as schumaku has kindly mentioned, in order to avoid the recurring redirect to the QNAP admin access screen.

What am I doing wrong?

Just adding some info for better understanding. This is the content of my httpd-ssl-vhosts-user.conf, that my QNAP generated:

NameVirtualHost *:8082

Listen 8082

<VirtualHost *:8082>
<Directory "/share/Web/WordPress">
Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
DocumentRoot "/share/Web/WordPress"
SSLEngine on
SSLProtocol All -SSLv2 -SSLv3
SSLCertificateFile "/etc/stunnel/stunnel.pem"
A curl to port 8082 results in:

a curl -v results in

I was expecting the wordpress site to come up, but instead the /Web/index.php was called.

As there seems to be a constant stream of people asking the very same question (with different setups or issues, but similarities: multihost environments ending up calling /Web/index.php instead of the correct path), maybe you do have an idea on how to resolve it?

I followed your advice and put the same question to a recent thread o the same issue. The age of this thread, though, shows it's a recurring issue, yet I haven't been able to find an answer on what is causing it after doing a thorough search on different media.

Your kind support is highly appreciated.

already answered in another post.

this isnt actually a QNAP issue, just a webserver issue, it could be on any platform. users must learn to know how to configure web server settings by learning something about Apache/PHP and what can be done with it.

the .htaccess file is one of the main files you will use to get your webserver working correctly.
