Flask app domain 404 Error

I’ve been trying to setup my Flask app on DigitalOcean but keep getting a 404 error:

Not Found The requested URL / was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.12 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

I’ve set up the site on Ubuntu 15.10 with apache2 and put my flask application in the /var/www/recomeal/Recomeal directory. I’ve been following this tutorial and don’t know what went wrong. I’ve also pointed my domain name ( at the virtual machine and I know that part at least is working, I just can’t get rid of the 404 error. Thanks so much for your help.


<VirtualHost *:80>
                WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/recomeal/recomeal.wsgi
                <Directory /var/www/recomeal/Recomeal/>
