How do you set up shared hosting?

    I've had a site running on port 8086 with port forwarding on my linksys router because my ISP blocks port 80 incoming to it's customers.

    Well, I set up ISPConfig to operate on port 80 internal, but when I log onto port 80 on my server's IP address, I get this:

    Shared IP
    This IP address is shared. For access to the web site which you look for, enter its address instead of its IP.
    For questions or problems please contact the server administrator.
    If I log into port 8086, I get my original site just fine. How do I get port 80 to display my /var/www/web5/web/index.html ? How do I make that shared IP message go away?

    Thank you so very much for your help!

    You have to use the FQDN you assigned to web5 in order to see the correct page. For example, if is the FQDN of web5, then you have to use in the browser's address bar.

    But this is an internal network for testing. Will I have to run the DNS service and have my PCs use it in order to connect to it?

    If you want to test the hosts in your internal network, you can setup the domain record in your hosts file instead of using an DNS server.
