Virtualmin Apache2 Default Page

Posted October 28, 2014 2.8k views


I’m fairly new to this having used web hosts previously. I intend to have multiple sites on the same droplet, so I’ve setup and installed virtualmin on my droplet, and followed all the steps from here

When I try to navigate to my URL however, it goes to the “Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page”, which is in var/www/html, instead of going to home/domainname/public_html.

I’ve trawled all over the internet and tried various different things, none of which seems to work. I decided I should get some advise from here before I break something!

Some help would be greatly appreciated!

On that topic, is there anything anyone can recommend that is better than virtualmin? It’s not the most intuitive.

Thank you.

Honestly, it will probably be easier if you just learn to edit your own Apache config files by hand rather than trying to bend virtualmin to your will…

only a slight learning curve, and then you will be able to just copy and paste your config file for each new website you want to create.

a couple of questions for starters:

what OS are you using on your home computer?
do you have a good sftp application and something you can run commands from?
