Apache 2

Apache 2.2 to 2.4 upgrade. VirtualHost directives w/o "www." prefix not working. No help in upgrade guide. Argh.

Typically, ServerAlias takes care of that for me... on version 2.2.x as in ServerAlias domain.ext wwww.domain.ext no clue yet in 2.4.x

I always use the IP address in a VirtualHost directive (along with the port number). Sure, it's a pain if the server changes IP, but I'm not dependent upon DNS either.

It looks like:

  ServerName conman.org
  Redirect permanent / http://www.conman.org/

  ServerName www.conman.org

Turns out it was a misleading symptom (yes, damn it, you could resolve the virtual domain, you just couldn't figure out what to do with a request to that domain) and a boneheaded change in how mod_rewrite handles the base portion of the request.
