Wild Card Domain Redirection

Wild Card Domain Redirection


Setting up wild card to redirect *.yourdomain.com to yourdomain.com i,e. anything.yourdomain.com will be 
redirected to yourdomain.com

First create a .htaccess file in the document root folder of the domain yourdomain.com. so anything.yourdomain.com will be redirected to yourdomain.com and below is the .htaccess file to achieve this condition.

DirectoryIndex index.html
Options +FollowSymlinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} .
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yourdomain\.com [NC]
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.yourdomain.com/$1 [R=301,L]

Anything that stats with *.domain.com eg: xxx.domain.com xyz.domain.com will be redirected to domain.com

Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make sock: could not bind to address

Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make sock: could not bind to address


Restarting httpd service 

Error :

Starting httpd: (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs!

Cause :

Simultaneous use of port by other processes in the server

Fix :

Following Steps need to be performed in-order to find its fix

Lets consider the process crond using the port

1. now run the below command

netstat -lnp | grep ''

2. if output is as following

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 30982/crond

then stop the process which is using the port (in our case it is “crond”) as below

service crond stop

3. then run following

service httpd restart

this should give as below

Stopping httpd: [FAILED]
Starting httpd: [ OK ]

and later start crond service as following

service crond start

Everything should work fine.
