Adding vhosts to Apache, the scripted way

This script adds a directory in /var/www and a vhost file in /etc/apache2/sites-available. Tested on Debian and Ubuntu.

#!/bin/bash
# usage $ sudo ./addvhost.sh mydomain.com

/bin/mkdir /var/www/$1 /bin/echo ' <VirtualHost *>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName '$1'
DocumentRoot /var/www/'$1'
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/'$1'-error.log
LogLevel warn CustomLog /var/log/apache2/'$1'-access.log combined
ServerSignature On </VirtualHost> ' > /etc/apache2/sites-available/$1
/bin/ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/$1 /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/$1
