WWW Note Resolving

Posted January 8, 2021 287 views

Hi, I hope someone can help with with this.
I have setup my website on the droplet (wordpress) and it all loads fine and is secured. The normal load is https://mydomain however, when I put a www. in front of it, it goes to a 404.
I have A records setup for both blank to IP address and www. to the IP address. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there @hostingWhale,

What I could suggest is changing the DNS record for your www from an A record to a CNAME record and pointing it to your main domain name.

Another thing that you could do is to check your Apache virtual host at:

cat /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

There you need to add your www version as a ServerAlias.
