Create and manage virtual hosts

A virtual host is a set of host names to which WebLogic Server instances (servers) or clusters respond. When you use virtual hosting, you use DNS to specify one or more host names that map to the IP address of a server or cluster. You also specify which Web applications are served by each virtual host.

To create a virtual host:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. Create a new virtual host
  3. Configure general virtual host properties
  4. Configure HTTP log file settings for a virtual host
  5. Configure HTTP for a virtual host
  6. Target virtual hosts to servers
  7. Target Web applications to the virtual host
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).

After you finish

Restart the Administration Server so that your changes can take effect.
