I followed this tutorial to set up Apache virtual host, but browser is unable to serve the homepage.

Here is my .conf file

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@ednet.dev
    ServerName ednet.dev
    ServerAlias www.ednet.dev
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html/ednet/public
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>

my host file

127.0.0.1   localhost
127.0.1.1   asad-HP-ProBook-4530s
127.0.0.1   ednet.dev

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

but when i try to open ednet.dev in browser it gives error

This site can’t be reached
ednet.dev refused to connect.
Try:

  • Please, provide the output of sudo netstat -na | grep 80. – M. Dm. Feb 27 '18 at 14:54
  • Better, use sudo lsof -i -n -P +c 0 | grep ':80\|:443' to find which service is using HTTP|HTTPS ports 80|443. – pa4080 Feb 27 '18 at 15:05
  • Does browsing to localhost show the default page of a web server? – M. Dm. Feb 27 '18 at 15:16
  • Yes, localhost show default page – Asad Hayat Feb 27 '18 at 15:19
  • is your apache configured to use your document root to search for its files? for instance could it serving from your htdocs directory? (this was the case on my windows machine) – Jermayne Williams Feb 27 '18 at 15:25

At first, be sure that your /etc/apache2/ports.conf contain line Listen 80

At second, be sure that you have enabled your config using sudo a2ensite yoursite.name.

At third, be sure that you have disabled default virtualhost sudo a2dissite 000-default

Also add options for your documentroot directory, for example:

<Directory /var/www/html/ednet/public/ >
    Require all granted
    AllowOverride All
    Options Indexes
</Directory>

Then, restart apache using sudo service apache2 restart and try to get access to virtualhost using the browser.

apache2      3686   www-data    4u  IPv6 153144      0t0  TCP *:80 (LISTEN)
tcp6       0      0 :::80                   :::*                    LISTEN     

Apache obviously only listens on IPv6 for some reason.

Change /etc/hosts to IPv6:

127.0.0.1   ednet.dev

to

::1   ednet.dev

This will enable you to use IPv6 for reaching the name.

You apache is obviously listening to IPv6, to test it you can do:

 wget http://[::1]/ -O /dev/null

and you will get 200 Ok as response

to make apache listen to only IPv4 addresses you add:

 Listen 0.0.0.0:80
 Listen 192.0.2.1:80

source: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/bind.html#ipv6

  • Also when i try to access ednet.dev chrome redirects it to https://ednet.dev , could https might be problem? – Asad Hayat Feb 28 '18 at 6:44
  • @AsadHayat well, if you have a redirection in you html page you must enable https by mystifying /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl.conf and then sudo a2ensite default-ssl. Also you can check the permissions on your /var/www/html/endnet and change it to www-data by typing sudo chown www-data:www-data -R /var/www/html/ednet – Adel Kihal Feb 28 '18 at 11:31

I don't know what was the problem but after uninstalling whole LAMP stack and reinstalling it again solve the problem.
