Question

Virtual host returning 404

Hi everyone!

I have vhost pointing to certain folder using the main domain and I’m setting up the second one, a subdomain, pointing to another folder. The first one works fine since forever, and the second one never worked, always returning 404. Funny thing is that if I call the IP address it loads the second vhost.

First vhost (working):

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin fechagas.dev@gmail.com
    ServerName cropflow.com.br
    ServerAlias www.cropflow.com.br
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/cropflow

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =cropflow.com.br [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.cropflow.com.br
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
</VirtualHost>

Second vhos (return 404):

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin fechagas.dev@gmail.com
    ServerName api.cropflow.com.br
    ServerAlias www.api.cropflow.com.br
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/cropflow-api/public

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =api.cropflow.com.br [OR]
RewriteCond %{SERVER_NAME} =www.api.cropflow.com.br
RewriteRule ^ https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [END,NE,R=permanent]
</VirtualHost>

Both vhosts was configured following this article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/como-configurar-apache-virtual-hosts-no-ubuntu-16-04-pt

Thanks in advance!

what is the “public” in

DocumentRoot /var/www/html/cropflow-api/public

Are you sure it is in a public folder?

Also you could take out the redirect to https and test it on http only

Yes I thought it might be the cert. And yes I do have some advice, lets encyrpt doesnt support virtual hosts in one file, so just use the working one and copy the contents too a second conf file and then run the certbot again

this might help

It did with me

Your api.cropflow.com.brvhost does a redirect to https://api.cropflow.com.br. So you’d need to look at the SSL/433 vhost and see if it’s properly configured.

$ curl -I api.cropflow.com.br
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
