• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

hi, linux v.Ubuntu Desktop 22.04 (i think)
Apache2 server is having trouble finding my files. These are the three directories im working with :
/var/www/html; &
This is what i did :
sudo cp ../sites-available/000-default.conf chlyde.conf (did that ok) and
added ServerName www.chlyde.com in chlyde.conf file;
Altered DocumentRoot /var/www/chlyde/ to chlyde.conf file;
in ../sites-available dir, I sudo a2ensite chlyde.conf; &
(and it created the files ok);&
went to ../apache2/sites-enabled and saw chlyde.conf was created there for me.
went to ../var/www/chlyde , created a simple index.html and tried to go there in browser www.chlyde.com and 192.168...(local)
the www.chlyde.com said:

the local 192.168... (local) said:
the "You Made It test" that came with the Apache2 install
I don't have a NameServer yet if I need one, I don't know.

Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? thanks

Looks like you just need to set up dns for www.chlyde.com to point to your local machine. You could add the following to your /etc/hosts file: www.chlyde.com chlyde.com
(replace the ip w/ the correct one) then reload your browser.
PM sent to @chlyde. Click on the mail icon next to your username in the upper right corner of the webpage.
