You need to configure your virtualhost to listen on www.site.com as well as site.com.

Under the ServerName site.com line, add the following:

ServerAlias www.site.com

If you already have a ServerAlias directive, simply append www.site.com to the line with a space between each alias:

ServerAlias site2.com ... www.site.com

Then restart Apache:

sudo service apache2 restart
