Apache always shows default page for Flask application

I applied those steps in this tutorial and did not face any problem but when I enter my IP adress, I always see default page of Apache.

Only exception was I used “python3” here: sudo python

I don’t know what to do or read next.

Hi @hansen After you noticed me, I changed “ServerName” to IP adress given to me.

Now I see Internal Server Error screen instead of default page.

Hi @squirtwinkle In step 4, what did you input as ServerName in the Apache configuration? If you specify that, it will not work for the bare IP-address.
