I have a CentOS 6 box with Virtualmin GPL.
I’ve been loving it so far, Virtualmin is a really powerful system once you get to grips with it.
However, I ran into problems trying to set up temp URLs for my virtual servers. Can anyone help me out?
I ran into an issue recently where I couldn’t figure out how to arrange some sort of temporary publicly accessbile URL that would allow me to view a website that hadn’t had a domain pointed to it yet?
For example, I set up a virtual server for example.com. I haven’t updated example.com’s DNS settings yet - and I want to make sure the site is working before I flick the switch.
How can I access the site before example.com is working, WITHOUT using another domain?
Bit more detail:
I have set up an alias using a spare domain I had, and got that working properly - but this spare domain is no longer spare, so I have nothing to point to my server that isn’t already in use.
Ideally it would be nice to set something up to work on http://my.ip.address/example.com/, and even nicer if that could be done automatically on new virtual servers.
Is there a tool to do this?
Any help gratefully received
