Adding Subdomains - Added VitualHosts and Restarted Apache, webpage not available?

  • Posted June 27, 2014

I created a file called in /etc/apache2/sites-available. Then I added the below:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/sub
    # ..any other config needed
    <Directory /var/www/sub>
        Order Allow,Deny
        Allow from all

And restarted apache. I can see that a file has been generated in sites-enabled, but when I access, the webpage is unavailable.

What did I do wrong?

Is there any more information you could provide? Did you set up DNS records pointing that subdomain to the IP address? Are you seeing any errors in /var/log/apache2/error.log ?
