Question

Problem with virtual host

Hello,

I want to have two websites on the same server. First domain would be tekky.site and a subdomain as faye.tekky.site

I have tried to follow the tutorial

And as a result, faye.tekky.site work! but not tekky.site

i can’t figure out the problem. Here’s the tekky.site configuration file in apache folders:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin admin@tekky.site

        ServerName tekky.site
        ServerAlias www.tekky.site

        DocumentRoot /var/www/tekky.site/public_html

        <Directory /var/www/tekky.site/public_html>
            Options FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted
        </Directory>

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

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

Best,

Bobby
