    Apache2: problems with subdomains

    Hi,

    I use in my server Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit operating system and Apache2 2.0 web server software.
    I have problems with subdomains. I have domain: example.eu and i'm trying to do subdomain like test.example.eu.

    My httpd.conf look like this:
    ServerName 127.0.1.1

    My /etc/apache2/sites-available/test.example.eu look like this:

    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName example.eu
    ServerAlias www.example.eu
    DocumentRoot /var/www
    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    </Directory>
    <Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride None Order allow,deny allow from all
    </Directory> DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
    </VirtualHost>
    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName test.example.eu
    DocumentRoot /var/www/
    <Directory /var/www/>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All Order Deny,
    Allow Allow from all </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>

    I have also done a2ensite test.example.eu

    If i do service apache2 reload , i dont see any error message
    But if i try to visit test.exaple.eu with web browser i receive error: Cannot display the web page.

    Can anybody give some advice ?

    Do you an entry in /etc/hosts or in your DNS server that resolves test.example.eu to the correct IP address?
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    It is a DNS issue and nothing to do with Apache? I.E. Is the client computer able to translate "test.example.eu". Does "nslookup test.example.eu" give an IP address? Examples (for my network):
    Code:
    doug@doug-64:~/config/bind$ nslookup s15.smythies.com   <<<< exists in DNS
    Server:         127.0.0.1
    Address:        127.0.0.1#53
    Name:   s15.smythies.com
    Address: 192.168.111.112
    doug@doug-64:~/config/bind$ nslookup zzz.smythies.com  <<<< does not exist in DNS
    Server:         127.0.0.1
    Address:        127.0.0.1#53
    ** server can't find zzz.smythies.com: NXDOMAIN
    Note: I had not seen Seiji's excellent reply above, and I always forget to think about the hosts file option that Seiji mentioned.
