I use this tutorial from DO but, it doesn’t works: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-apache-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04

I see that the structure of virtual host file configuration (Eg: example.config) is different that the tutorial is showing.

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webaster@domain
DocumentRoot /var/www/html

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

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

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
        DirectoryIndex index.php index.pl index.cgi index.html index.xhtml index.htm
    </IfModule>

</VirtualHost>

What is the problem?

Hi @georodrigues,

It should be okay to use the following virtual host

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>

It’s let’s say simpler than what you’ve posted. Having said that, you can use the one you’ve provided as well.

Can you confirm what’s the exact issue you are experiencing?
