Question

Setting Up Apache Virtual Hosts- I keep getting the Apache default page?

I keep getting the apache default page, here are my steps for a single site what am i doing wrong?

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install php5-gd libssh2-php

sudo mkdir -p /var/www/Mysite/public_html sudo chown -R rami:rami /var/www/Mysite/public_html sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www

Create Demo Pages for Each Virtual Host

nano /var/www/Mysite/public_html/index.html

<html> <head> <title>Welcome to Example.com!</title> </head> <body> <h1>Success! The example.com virtual host is working!</h1> </body> </html>

Create New Virtual Host Files

sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/Mysite.conf

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/photo.conf

<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin My email@live.com ServerName Mysite.com ServerAlias www.Mysite.com DocumentRoot /var/www/Mysite/public_html ErrorLog ${APACHELOGDIR}/error.log CustomLog ${APACHELOG_DIR}/access.log combined </VirtualHost>

Save and close the file.

Enable the New Virtual Host Files

sudo a2ensite photo.conf sudo service apache2 restart

Could it be my Dns/domain setup, do i have to add subdomain or something more complex, it’s set up just to point here and thats it?

Ultimately I’m trying to set 3 wordpress websites, prior to this i installed LAMP and set up the database’s for each following the How To Set Up Multiple WordPress Sites on a Single Ubuntu VPS. I stopped after the database was setup and followed this guide How To Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to test if it would work but nothing so far.

Im not getting any errors and everything seemed fine, i don’t know what I’m missing?
