List All VHosts in Apache

If you have to troubleshoot any Apache issues, it is always a good idea to start with checking of the currently enabled Virtual Hosts.

This can be done with the -S option used on the httpd/apache2 or on the apachectl/apache2ctl.

-S option shows which ports and which IP addresses or domain names are configured for each website being served, shows where the configuration file for each VirtualHost is located and performs a syntax check.

Get a List of All VHosts in Apache

Use one of the following commands to get a list of all VHosts in Apache on RHEL, CentOS, Fedora etc.:

$ httpd -S
$ apachectl -S

List All Virtual Hosts Served by Apache2

Use one of the following commands to list all Virtual Hosts served by Apache2 on Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint etc.:

$ apache2 -S
$ apache2ctl -S

In the output of the above commands you’ll see all currently enabled Virtual Hosts and the result of a syntax check:

VirtualHost configuration:          is a NameVirtualHost
default server default (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default.conf:1)
port 80 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/example.conf:1)
port 443 namevhost (/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/example.conf:15)
Syntax OK
