Virtual hosts / aliases

Jim Serio-2
We will have several hostnames setup that will need to point to a directory
within our primary site. For example, we'd like:

http://subdomain.asu.edu to point to http://education.asu.edu/somedir/

I tried two methods. The first was to add the subdomain.asu.edu as a host on
education.asu.edu. Then add a virtual link from http://subdomain.asu.edu to
/somedir. This clearly did not work :-)

The next attempt was to create an actual host for subdomain.asu.edu and have
the /cmsHomePage point to http://education.asu.edu/somedir, however the
system appears to not let you redirect outside of its current host.

I ended up performing a redirect from our Apache server which works great
but if this possible in dotCMS, I'd love to hear how.

Re: Virtual hosts / aliases

Maria Ahues Bouza
Jim,

I can see the issue here. I tried to do the second method which is create a
new host then create the virtual link /cmsHomePage to point to the other
host with the full URL. When I did this through the click here to browse,
the URL was /somedir/index.dot (without the other host URL on it), If I
tried to manually typed the other host on the URL to redirect to, then we
are removing it with Javascript.

I think this is a bug and it should allow you to link from one host to
another using virtual links. Can you please enter this in JIRA and we'll
take care of it for 1.6?

Thanks
Maria

Source compilation error

Mickey Hariparsad
Hi everyone, I am having compiling the source code. I have the latest stable
release. I have followed the eclipse guide but I am getting an error with a
missing file HYPERLINK
"http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-jsptaglib_1_1.dtd"http://java.sun.com/j2e
e/dtds/web-jsptaglib_1_1.dtd. This location does not exist anymore. Anyone
know a way around this?

Thanks

Re: Virtual hosts / aliases

Mr. Christopher Falzone
In reply to this post by Maria Ahues Bouza
While redirecting http://subdomain.mydomain.com/ to
http://mydomain.com/subdomain is nice and does kind of help, it still
falls short of a real solution to virtual hosts.  In IIS or Apache, when
you create a virtual host and point it to a directory, that directory
actually become the document root for that virtual host.  For example:
what happens when someone types in
http://subdomain.mydomain.com/path/to/mypage.dot in the proposed
solution?  It will result in a 404 not found error, where as IIS or
Apache would correctly resolve the path.

I have been thinking about this a lot lately, because our old system
(running in IIS) allowed us to accomplish this very easily.  I know it's
also super easy in Apache.  It would seem to me that Apache Tomcat would
have an answer for us somehow.

Are there any plans to accommodate this at some point within DotCMS?  I
think that it would be a great addition toDotCMS to correctly address
virtual hosts.  Currently I am thinking of keeping my old servers
on-line just to address the issue of virtual hosts.

In reply to this post by Mickey Hariparsad
I know that a fresh checkout of stable works as I have it working here
on multiple machines  Let me ask you a few questions

1. You mentioned the eclipse guide is this a problem in Eclipse? Debug
environment or something?
2.  Is this a fresh stable checkout or did you have a previous
checkout and you did an update?
3.  Where exactly are you seeing this error?

RE: Source compilation error

Mickey Hariparsad
Hi Jason, yep this happens in the debug environment. I downloaded a fresh
checkout (I had no previous version). I downloaded this version from stable
trunk. The issue was with
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-jsptaglib_1_1.dtd.” needed to be
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-jsptaglibrary_1_1.dtd”. After this I got
another error .

 

2008-01-31 15:03:39,640 ERROR org.apache.commons.digester.Digester - Parse
Error at line 4 column 16: Document root element "struts-config", must match
DOCTYPE root "struts-config".

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Document root element "struts-config", must
match DOCTYPE root "struts-config".

 

 

 

 I didn’t go through with this version, instead I used the source code in
the bundled version that is downloadable. That is working fine.

Re: Virtual hosts / aliases

Jim Serio-2
In reply to this post by Maria Ahues Bouza
Maria,

Before opening the ticket, I wanted to test this out again. I brought up the
virtual links page, clicked "Add New Virtual Link" and put in the following:

Title: blah
Applies to: All Hosts
URL: /jim
Redirect: http://jim.asu.edu/jim

When saving it, I was expecting to find http://jim.asu.edu removed from the
redirect URL but it remained. After testing it, it worked! However, when
trying to use /cmsHomePage as the local URL and redirecting it to
http://jim.asu.edu, I received a 404 error when trying to view the site.
This may just be limited to /cmsHomePage then?

I opened ticket 834.

Jim

Re: Virtual hosts / aliases

Maria Ahues Bouza
Interesting because I did try like 4 times and it was always removing my
host from the URL.

Thanks for creating the ticket, we'll take care of it and fix this issue.
:-)

Once the fix is in stable you'll be able to update your code.

Thanks
Maria
