Question

Apache not recognizing directories

  • Posted January 16, 2015

When trying to load anything other than www.example.com (for example, www.example.com/something), I get an error from apache indicating that ‘the requested URL /something was not found on this server’.

Any ideas on what the issue may be? I’m running a laravel app on a LAMP droplet.

It literally means that the folder “something” doesn’t exist at that location.

Please provide the apache2 config for your site.

Hello there,

Everyone can check our series of tutorials under the How To Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_collections/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts

Hope that this helps!

Also, my sites-enabled conf:

<VirtualHost *:80>
	# The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
	# the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
	# redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
	# specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
	# match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
	# value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
	# However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
	#ServerName www.example.com

	ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
	DocumentRoot /var/www/html/scheduleify/public

	# Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
	# error, crit, alert, emerg.
	# It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
	# modules, e.g.
	#LogLevel info ssl:warn

	ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
	CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

	# For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
	# enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
	# include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
	# following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
	# after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
	#Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
</VirtualHost>

# vim: syntax=apache ts=4 sw=4 sts=4 sr noet

Here is what I have in my etc/apache2/apache2.conf file: (I stripped out the comments for convenience)

Mutex file:${APACHE_LOCK_DIR} default
