Question

I setup the Apache virtual hosts but when i reach the domain, the server show the default page (/var/www/html)

I`m trying to setup a doplet for wordpress apps. So, i create a virtual host for my site which has this configurations:

UseCanonicalName On
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin mikhaelipcn@gmail.com

        ServerName revistaestilooff.com.br
        ServerAlias www.revistaestilooff.com.br

        DocumentRoot /var/www/estilo_off/

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

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

After add this config with a2ssite and disable the 000-default with a2dssiste, i restar the apache2 but when i type the domain on browser, i`m getting the default page at /var/www/html

into the error.log from apache:

AH00112: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/www/html/estilo_off] does not exist

AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server’s fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1. Set the ‘ServerName’ directive globally to suppress this message

maybe its a permission issue?

drwxr-sr-x 5 root www-data 4096 Mar 11 13:37 estilo_off drwxr-xr-x 5 www-data www-data 4096 Mar 10 20:50 html drwxr-xr-x 2 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 28 23:01 html.old

Hi there @mikhaelipcn,

What happens if you run an Apache config test with:

sudo apachectl-t 

Also the DocumentRoot should be specified without a trailing slash:

        DocumentRoot /var/www/estilo_off
        <Directory /var/www/estilo_off>
            Options FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted
        </Directory>

After that change, try to restart Apache and test the site again.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
