Server refused connection for websites on virtual hosting

Post by homenas » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:49 pm

Hi

I had websites running on my QNAP with virtual hosting. I was just starting and redid everything to have a clean start agian.
Now I have 2 virtual host defined, but get an error: server refused connection.

When I stop virtual hosting and upload wordpress under /web/ then I am redirected to the administration page of qnap.

I tried everything. Reset web service, reset PHP, delete web directory again, but nothing works.
Which analysis tools exist to find out what is wrong?

Thanks for your help,

Wow I'm so glad I found your post.
I'm experiencing exactly the same thing here.

I got in touch with the french support, we're trying to find a solution, which we haven't yet.


Please keep in touch if you find a solution from your side, I will as well.



I started from scratch so here is what I did :
Set my server on DHCP constant IP both on my router and on the Qnap
Re-directed port 80 and port 8081 on my router

Enabled the SQL server
Installed phpmyadmin
Created a database on phpmyadmin

Enabled web server
Made sure that ports were set up to 80 and 8081 for secure connection

Installed WordPress
Linked WordPress to my database on phpMyadmin

on my domain provider, I redirected my domain to my IP address.


At this point, everything should actually be "brand new". What I actually got is a redirect to my admin qnap page when I'm searching for both http://mydomain.com and httpS://mydomain.com

When trying to delete index.php I get a forbidden error on httpS://... and the servers tries to redirect to the admin page on http:// but takes too much time to respond.


I've started from scratch at least 8 to 10 times, nothing is working and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Dear all,

I found a solution.
There were two errors.

First step:

[~] # /etc/init.d/Qthttpd.sh stop
...
[~] # cp /etc/default_config/apache.conf /etc/config/apache/apache.conf
[~] # /etc/init.d/Qthttpd.sh start
...

This is from another thread.

Then I saw that the subdirectories are not copied to the /web/.../ directories
Now it is working.

Regards,

Arthur

Hello Arthur,

Could you please add some lines about this? I am afraid I don't understand the way to fix the error with what you wrote.

Where did you write this?


I don't understand the error therefore I don't understand your solution :/

I'm getting the same errors. Files are where they are supposed to be however, it seems that the contents of httpd-vhosts-user.conf are almost entirely ignored. I've checked to ensure that the file is included in the main httpd.conf files, and I've done some hand editing to test that different ports are listened to, etc, but for some reason, only the main host works, but none of the virtual ones.

Here are the contents of my config file; very simple:

NameVirtualHost *:80


<VirtualHost _default_:80>
DocumentRoot "/share/Web"
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost *:80>
<Directory "/share/Web">
Options FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
</Directory>
ServerName www.xyz.dev
DocumentRoot "/share/Web/xyz"
</VirtualHost>

Stafylocok, use PuTTY to connect over SSH wit your station. You can read this file homenas mentioned "etc/default_config/apache.conf". The start and stop command is for the apache service.

Just copied the contents of each file here for everyone:

"etc/default_config/apache.conf"

There are differences between both fies, but I can't explain, how and why should this happen.

I followed the first steps mentioned by homenas, but starting the internal Apache web server just broguht me the version of my apache.conf back, which differs to the one from "default_config" folder. So is this useless?

I'm not sure what homenas meant by fixing the second error, because he had seen that there are no subfolders copied. Not sure what does this mean.

Stafylocok, use PuTTY to connect over SSH wit your station. You can read this file homenas mentioned "etc/default_config/apache.conf". The start and stop command is for the apache service.

I'm fairly certain that after 17 months, the OP has sorted out their issue - or does not really care anymore about the post that is nearly one and a half years old.......

jaysona, you could be right, but this issue is yet not closed and I' facing the same problem in 2020. There is no complete solution provided, questions open and those who will search and find this topic might struggle to understand what they're talking about. I brought light into this topic. My concern is not to warm up leftovers, rather help to find a solution.
