Question

www. CNAME not working on my site

I have a single site setup on an Ubuntu 14.04 site running LAMP. My site is coded using the Laravel framework if that matters, and I managed to get it all to work using my laravel directory in the var/www folder, etc. I setup a CNAME too in order for www.speakingof.news to redirect to speakingof.news (the non-www domain works wonderfully) but the CNAME redirect doesn’t work.

The CNAME is ‘www’ and the host is ’@’ (or in my case, 'speakingof.news.’). I think this is a problem with the apache configuration files, but I don’t know where to look. Any help that points me in the direction of where to look would be much appreciated!

Your CNAME looks fine. You are correct that it is an issue with your Apache config. If I remember my Apache correctly, you can just add a ServerAlias directive.
