Apache default vhost overrides the custom ones

I’ve just created a LAMP droplet from the applications.

My default vhost overrides my new one, so /var/www/html loads for me for a new domain.

Things I tired:

  • The symlink is enabled in the /sites-enabled directory
  • Apache is restarted with no error message
  • Replaced *.80 with the IP, but didn’t help
  • Added ServerName localhost to the apache2.config

There’s a typo in your virtual host config: should be instead. Though you should probably keep it set to *:80. Do you have any other virtual hosts enabled? Make sure that the symlink in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled ends in .conf.

Yes, then it listed my /var/www directory
