born.ucdavis.edu$ telnet dirac.org 80
telnet: connect to address Connection timed out

Which is no surprise.  It tells me that Apache isn't listening to
connections from outside the network.  I knew that already.

3. Apache Configuration
This is the weak link, I think.  apache2ctl reports no configuration proble=

root@satan:/etc/apache2# apache2ctl configtest
Syntax OK

I'm using name based virtual hosting since I may want to serve two
domains from the same IP address in the future.  In apache2.conf:

ServerName www.dirac.org
NameVirtualHost *:80
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log
LogLevel debug

In /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/001-dirac.org:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   ServerName  www.dirac.org
   ServerAlias www.dirac.org dirac.org satan

   DirectoryIndex index.html
   DocumentRoot /www/dirac

   LogLevel debug
   ErrorLog  /var/log/apache2/dirac.org.error
   CustomLog /var/log/apache2/dirac.org.access combined

And in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/002-iuselinux.org:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   ServerName  www.iuselinux.org
   ServerAlias www.iuselinux.org iuselinux.org

   DirectoryIndex index.html
   DocumentRoot /www/iuselinux

   LogLevel debug
   ErrorLog  /var/log/apache2/iuselinux.org.error
   CustomLog /var/log/apache2/iuselinux.org.access combined

I worked my ass off to get rid of the "NameVirtualHost *:80 has no
virtual host" error messages.  I'm no expert, but this looks right to

4. hosts
It almost feels like Apache doesn't recognize that http requests from
born.ucdavis.edu are coming in for dirac.org, so it ignores these
requests.  So perhaps the problem is some other file having to do with
server identification.  Here is the contents of /etc/hostname:


and /etc/hosts:    localhost  azazel  satan  dirac.org  www.dirac.org  lucifer  mara  demogorgon  belial  orcus  jublex  asmodeus

I'm at a complete loss here.  I'd really appreciate some help here.  I
really don't know what to do next.  I've collected a bunch of data,
but can't figure out where to go from here.
