Question

www subdomain not working

I know this has been asked many times and there a lot of questions and answers regarding this. I’ve tried all of them but none of them worked for me. I will put here important details regarding my setup

sites-available folder

  • 000-default.conf
  • blogs.ai-labs.conf
  • 000-default.conf.save
  • default-ssl.conf
  • ai-labs.co.conf
  • f5exam.ai-labs.conf
  • api.ai-labs.conf

sites-enabled folder

  • ai-labs.co.conf
  • api.ai-labs.conf
  • blogs.ai-labs.conf
  • f5exam.ai-labs.conf

ai-labs.co.conf file

    <VirtualHost *:80>
            # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
            # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
            # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
            # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
            # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
            # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
            # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
            ServerName ai-labs.co

            ServerAlias www.ai-labs.co
            ServerAdmin admin@ai-labs.co
            DocumentRoot /var/www/html/ai-labs.co/

            # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
            # error, crit, alert, emerg.
            # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
            # modules, e.g.
            #LogLevel info ssl:warn

            # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
            # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
            # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
            # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
            # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
            #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf

            WSGIScriptAlias / /var/www/html/ai-labs.co/ai_labs_website/wsgi.py

    </VirtualHost>

I already did the CNAME where www is the name and @ is my hostname.

I really don’t get it why the www subdomain just won’t work
