Question

www.domain.com not working, domain.com working, why??

  • Posted March 7, 2014

Hi,

I created a virtual host and httpd.conf reads as follows

<VirtualHost 146.185.136.14> DocumentRoot /srv/http/shilpi.com ServerName shilpi.com ServerAlias www.shilpi.com ErrorLog “/var/log/httpd/shilpi.com-error_log” CustomLog “/var/log/httpd/shilpi.com-access_log” common <Directory “/srv/http/shilpi.com”> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>

Now when I visit http://shilpi.com it works but if I visit www.shilpi.com I get the message webpage is not available.

Anybody any clue???

Thanks

Its working now. <br> <br>I put www in the left column and @ in the right column in CNAME record. <br> <br>Thanks

My domain is not working with http but it is working with www. How to overcome this?

thinking about it, I think @ on the right will only work with a CNAME. <br> <br>if you add an A, put in your IP address on the right, <br>if you add a CNAME, put in shilpi.com on the right <br> <br>CNAME or A will work, you only need one or the other, not both.

you have to add a www entry to the dns, I think an A record with www on the left and @ on the right will do the trick. After adding it, wait 15+ minutes for the new entry to appear, and the old cached entry to expire.
