I am running several virtual hosts on a VPS running Apache 2.4.

I registered a domain at my VPS provider OVH: 55eastmonroe.software.

I want the subdomain www.55eastmonroe.software to point to the same site, so beside the A record (55eastmonroe.software), I created a CNAME record: www.55eastmonroe.software

But when I navigate to www.55eastmonroe.software, the server returns the default Apache page (defined in the 000-default.conf file).

Here is my 002-wp_em.conf file

Virtual Host configuration

Thanks for your help.

Use the ServerAlias directive:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName 55eastmonroe.software
    ServerAlias www.55eastmonroe.software
    DocumentRoot /var/www/em_home

See the docs about name based virtual hosts.


In the VirtualHost section, try adding a ServerAlias www.55eastmonroe.software entry, or even ServerAlias *.55eastmonroe.software.
