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 it works with the correct webpage, but not when I go to It shows the webpage.

My subdomain virtualhost file is written like this <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost ServerName ServerAlias 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 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?
