Can't set two domains to direct to separate root folders

Hello everybody, so basically I have two separate domains, that I’m trying to run on the same droplet, but have both domains navigate to separate root folders, being two separate websites. I’ve followed this guide to the LETTER: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-14-04-lts

My sites available folder has the following files: 000-default.conf , cybergamegear.com.conf , default-ssl.conf , and delcontedesigns.com.conf. So the two domains I’m trying to set up are DelconteDesigns.com (which works) and CyberGameGear.com (which navigates to DelconteDesigns.com currently for some reason, rather than the root folder I want it to.

Here is what my cybergamegear.com.conf looks like: <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin jonathandelcontedesigns@gmail.com ServerName cybergamegear.com ServerAlias www.cybergamegear.com DocumentRoot /var/www/cybergamegear.com/public_html ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined </VirtualHost>

The only thing I can imagine is that my 000-default.conf is overriding it? Here is what that file looks like:

<VirtualHost *:80>

ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/html


<Directory /var/www/html>
        Options -Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
</Directory>

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

</VirtualHost>

Do I need to delete this file?

Could you post the output of apache2ctl -S?

@jnugh Yes I ran a2ensite, it says both sites are running. etc/apache2/sites-enabled lists both sites, and I did run service apache2 restart

Did you run a2ensite? 000-default.conf does not contain a ServerName and will therefor only be used as a fallback. Does ls /etc/apache2/sites-enabled list cybergamegear.com.conf? DId you reload the apache configuration by running (for example) service apache2 reload?

@jnugh hm… do you have any idea why disabling nginx would change the way my css/js folders would work? I’m not sure how to fix that
