Hello there,

You would need to update your OLS Virtual Host with the new domain name. Here’s a step by step guide on how to do that from the OLS official website:

If you are using OpenLiteSpeed, please access to the web admin at port 7080. And follow this doc to add your new domain on the listener. Otherwise you may just get a 404 page. Before accessing to the web admin, please make sure you have port 7080 allowed, ufw allow 7080.

Best, Eric
