    You should have an index.html page in /var/www/html. Your statement that nothing works isn't very helpful. What exactly does happen when you open your browser and in the address bar you type:

    Re: apache php problem

    at the moment when i use the ip i get same as when i use the domain

    This site can’t be reached

    Check if there is a typo in www..

    • If spelling is correct, try running windows network Diagnostics.

    when i setup a test config in sites available/enabled and var/www/html/testsite.html and using the server name as the ip, the test page loads. when i use it for any of my other sites in var/www/html/sitename/ nothing loads . my sites used to be in home/site/public_html before but i read 20.04 must use var/www/html/site/public_html

    a wild guess: if ive setup custom name servers for my domain with my old host to point to new, do i need to edit resolv.conf ?

    Re: apache php problem

    root@localhost:~# host mysite.com
    Host mysite.com not found: 2(SERVFAIL)
    root@localhost:~# host myothersite.co.uk
    myothersite.co.uk has address 77............

    the difference between the two is how the name servers are setup, one has custom name servers setup on old host still pointing to ip, the .co.uk domain was moved to a new host and uses A record with domain and the hosts name servers. It still doesnt display when url is used

    Re: apache php problem

    Apache determines which virtual host to use by matching the requested name to the value of the ServerName field in every <VirtualHost></VirtualHost> stanza. If it finds no matches, it uses the default page.

    You can use a ServerAlias declaration in the VirtualHost definition specifying other names to which that definition applies.
    Code:
    <VirtualHost>
    ServerName     www.example.com
    ServerAlias    example.com
    [stuff]
    </VirtualHost>

    Code:
    <VirtualHost 77...:80>

        ServerName www..com
        ServerAlias www..com
        DocumentRoot /var/www/html/.com/public_html

    Re: apache php problem

    Have you got DNS updated with the correct IP for the domain name you are trying to hit?

    If you are trying to connect to www.example.com and there is no DNS entry for it, the traffic will go nowhere - so it won't hit Apache at all.

    You can verify this by either ping or using dig.

    Code:
    ping www.example.com
    Code:
    dig www.example.com
