chromium showing webpage of apache default host when virtual host is setup


I have apache2 webserver setup on buster 10.

i have added 1 virtual host on this server.

firefox is correctly showing the virtual host but chromium is showing the default host on the server when virtual host is accessed.

i have flushed the dns of chromium still no change. firefox accessing the correct virtual host and everything with it is normal.

thanks for looking into the problem.

I guess you have to delete the browser cache.

I am terribly sorry for replying so late. but the problem is same even after clearing chromium browser cache.

I just went full on on firefox and almost forgot about this problem. but when i started to cross test my site, it again frustrated me.

A shift+ctrl+R should force a reload of the page from the server.

Are you running Chrome and Firefox on the same 'puter?
Are you running them on the same 'puter as the web server?
What happens when you access from a different 'puter?

I can't see how the web server would be a factor if two different browsers work differently, but have you tried restarting apache?

I'm running chrome and firefox on the same computer
same computer as webserver

don't have access to other computer right now.

i have tried restarting apache and computer

thought it might be some server misconfiguration like
replaced
<VirtualHost *:80>
with
<VirtualHost localhost:80>
even then same effect. I do have separate enabled virtual conf file enabled like below with seperate root folders
<VirtualHost myshop.localhost:80>

funny thing whatever i type like *.localhost/* resolves to localhost/* but shows url as *.localhost on chrome but firefox working perfect.

If you send a request to the web server with an IP address, you will get the first VirtualHost defined.
If you send a request to the web server with a domain name (i.e.; "localhost") that's not defined in a VirtualHost you will probably get the default Apache page (the index.html in /var/www/ -- ?), if it makes it to the web server at all.

What is the ServerName in the first VirtualHost? (You don't need to post that, just put in the address bar of the browser) What happens when you use that?

What do the web server access and error logs tell you about what's happening? Compare the logged entries for each browser.

Thank you very much scasey.

The problem was i haven't defined ip6 values in etc/hosts. on you advice i checked the access.log and sure enough it was showing ::1 as from ip, so i configured it in my /etc/hosts and chromium is working fine.

wonder why firefox defaults to ip4 and chromium ip6

anyway thanks very much for this information as this solves my problem.
