Question

ServerAlias works but not ServerName

I have a LAMP droplet with let’s encrypt, on which I installed WordPress.
ServerAlias works but not ServerName. For example, when I go to www.subdomain.domain.com it works with the correct webpage, but not when I go to subdomain.domain.com It shows the domain.com webpage.

My subdomain virtualhost file is written like this
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
ServerName subdomain.domain.com
ServerAlias www.subdomain.domain.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/wordpress
</VirtualHost>

I have set up an A record for the subdomain to the same droplet that my domain has. I have a CNAME record for www.subdomain.domain.com
I had a .htaccess file which I renamed to .htaccess2 (I don’t know if that stops it from working or not)

Any ideas on what is wrong?
