Apache Virtual Hosts Problem in FM Server 17

Hi,

 

I'm trying to get fully qualified domain names to open specific databases on FileMaker Server 17.

 

For example I need sales.mycompany.com and customers.mycompany.com to open specific database files on FileMaker Server 17. There are a number of additional databases that need this treatment.

 

In the past (server 12 through 16) i have gotten success by tweaking httpd.conf and related files to open specific index.html files (containing a simple javascript 'refresh' to forward the client browsers to the FileMaker URL).

 

In server 17 behavior is different. Apache will always direct the client to /Library/FileMaker\ Server/HTTPServer/htdocs/httpsRoot/index.html no matter what I change.

 

I can't work out what has changed. Can anyone point me in the right direction to configure vhosts (or suggest a different method to get to the same goal).

 

Many thanks,

 

ft.
