Wordpress Multisite Issue


My domain is: boosterclubnetwork.com madisonboosters.com

My web server is (include version): Apache2

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 18.04

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Linode VPS

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): No

I want to run multisite on a Ubuntu VPS using LAMP. I want to support subsite domains as well as custom URLs. I am using letsencrypt.

I couldn’t figure out my virtualhost file, so I let my friend take a swing at it, now it’s jacked up even worse.

I am having 2 problems.

  1. The url boosterclubnetwork.com (or www.boosterclubnetwork.com) loads a completely different site on the same server.

  2. I get a certificate domain mismatch (this seems to be obviously related to the fact that the wrong site is loading).

<VirtualHost *:80>
# The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
# the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
# redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
# specifies what hostname must appear in the request’s Host: header to
# match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
# value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
# However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
ServerName www.boosterclubnetwork.com
ServerAlias boosterclubnetwork.com
