Domain name, external dns servers and web server with directory names. Problem?
Ok, I try to explain what my problem is. I hope someone can find out what I'm trying to say.
1. I have www-server with only ip name: 18.104.22.168
2. The pages I need domain for are in a directory, like 22.214.171.124/user/
3. I have forums etc under my user name, 126.96.36.199/user/forum/
4. I have a domain name (referrin as www.domain.com)
5. I have external dns-servers
Is it somehow possible to use my domain name with DNS or such, so it would point www.domain.com to 188.8.131.52/user - currently I am able to point only direct ip and I would have to use the web page with www.domain.com/user ... Also forum would be www.domain.com/user/forum
Instead I would like it to point www.domain.com to 184.108.40.206/user so it would show up to the browser just as www.domain.com. The forums would be located www.domain.com/forum OR most preferably forum.domain.com (I can register as many subdomains as I like).
You would have to modify the server configuration to make the root /user/ rather than what it currently is
You could set up a subdomain to be user.domain.com/forum or even forum.domain.com?
I was able to figure it out.
What I had to do was I put c name aliases to the dns servers (forum.domain.com, www.domain.com) and domain.com pointed to the ip.
Then I configuren my apache with virtual hosts pointing to the correct directories on the server.
Seems to work fine now. It was my first time I ever configured a domain for my web server, so I can say I learned a lot.
