    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log

    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

</VirtualHost>

#save the above

 

 

Second:

nano createweb.sh

 echo "Setting up website: $1"

 sitename=$1

 sudo mkdir /var/www/$1

 sudo mkdir /var/www/$1/public_html

 sudo chown -R ubuntu:ubuntu /var/www/$1/public_html

 sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/template.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/$1.conf

 sed -i "s/newsite/$sitename/g" /etc/apache2/sites-available/$sitename.conf
