Virtual hosts


I wanted to make a virtual host on my server but I didn’t see a way to create one. I noticed their are subdomains and that would be ok, but I was hoping to just get a virtual host setup though an apache configuration.


Each fully hosted domain and subdomain in our system is set up as a virtualhost in our apache configurations.

I guess I should have been a little more clear. I know how to be able to setup a virtual host in the httpd.conf, but I’m not aware of where the config file is located. Plus it’s likely to be like the php.ini that isn’t editable.

My question was how do I setup a virtual host on dreamhost rather than make a subdomain.



You can’t access our configuration files on a shared hosting account.
