Hi there,

I can see that both of your sites are up and running now. Would you mind sharing how did you sort out the issue?

Usually, in such cases, I recommend the following:

  • Make sure that both sites have an SSL certificate, otherwise, if only 1 site has an SSL certificate, if you visit the second site via HTTPS you would be seeing the contents of the first site as it is the only one having VHost configured for port 443:

  • Make sure that the permissions of both sites are correct so that the Apache www-data user has access to read the directories

  • Check the Apache error log for more information:

tail -100 /var/log/apache2/error.log
