Need help redirecting http://mysite to www.mysite.com
Hi, I’m hoping someone here can help. I currently have a digital ocean droplet running Ubuntu LAMP on 18.04 .
My site works fine when accessed at www.mysite.com. However, typing it into a browser (http://mysite.com) gets a generic error in the browser (‘this site can’t be reached. mysite.com’s server ip address couldn’t be found’).
Here are the things I’ve tried:
Accessed the 000-default.conf file at /etc/apache2/sites-anabled and added the following:
ServerAlias mysite.com *.mysite.com
This seems to work OK on Firefox and Safari, but on Chrome I'm still getting the error. I tried clearing my cache on Chrome but it doesn't seem to help.
