Centos Virtual hosting | Enabling multi apache hosting through 1 IP

OK, so now you decided to have one VPS, one IP, and many sites?
Cool, its very easy

First in the root folder, create your website folders, like you have 2 websites, so name them as site1.com and site2.com

So now you’ll be having two website folders site1.com and site2.com in your root directory.

Now navigate to /etc/httpd/conf/ and start editing httpd.conf file,

At the end of the page, you will find a line, just like below

#NameVirtualHost *:80

Just uncomment that by removing # from it, So that it becomes like the below one:-

NameVirtualHost *:80

Then below their will be more lines which will be commented so uncomment them also, and make them look something like this

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/site1.com
ServerName site1.com
ErrorLog logs/site1-error_log
CustomLog logs/site1-access_log common
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/site2.com
ServerName site2.com
ErrorLog logs/site2-error_log
CustomLog logs/site2-access_log common
</VirtualHost>

Thats it, after this just restart your apache by the following command

service httpd restart

Done,
You have successfully enabled multi-site or virtual hosting on apache Centos.
