(posted my mistake in webmin forum)


I am using webmin 1.430 on a 3 server cluster. I have tried everything to create a virtual host and there is no way to do it. I created the user, the group, the virtual host, replicated everything to the other two servers, but when I try to navigate to the site, all I get is a page with the text listed below.

I have tried to locate where this page is being served from (from which directoy on the server) and have had no luck. All I know is that it is not being served from the standard server root (/var/www/html). Does anybody know where this page is served from ? 

These are the conf directives generated by webmin:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /home/mydomain/htdocs
<Directory "/home/mydomain/htdocs">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
