Apache Virtual Hosts – Server error

Hi All! I have been following this tutorial and have run into a problem.

There are 2 main .config files 000-default-le-ssl.conf 000-default.conf I carefully amended these and the main site still works.

I have 2 other sites (created and enabled)


The used to point to the main site but now it nolonger points to the main site which is great I guess but it says: server IP address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN

I have the A record pointing to the right server.

I feel like I am almost there but so far away. Any thoughts?

Have you created separate vhost files for each domains you have on your droplet?

The files


should only be used for a default/example config. If you want to add another website to your droplet, you’ll need to follow the process of creating a vhost file for it.

The tutorial itself should show you how to create the vhost for an domain.
