Redirecting domain to a folder

user131274 asked:

I have a domain www.mydomain.com. It is hosted on Apache.

When I hit this domain, it takes me to the Apache default page.

Now my domain works as follows:

www.domain.com/support
www.domain.com/support/admin
www.domain.com/support/staff
www.domain.com/support/support

I want it to be

www.domain.com
www.domain.com/admin
www.domain.com/staff
www.domain.com/support

Support is the name of my application hosted in Apache.

Here are my vhost entries:

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

What should I edit? How shall I do this? Should I remove the ‘/support/’ thing from my link?

My answer:


Just move everything up a directory?

cd /var/www/vhosts/www.domain.com/support
mv * ..
