Apache 000-default virtual host


I see that there's the 000-default virtual host and I left it. I created a new file and link for mysite.com and it works, but not how I want it to. I'm wondering, does anyone know if I need to delete or if I shouldn't delete the 000-default vh?

For some reason if to go to http://mysite.com it takes me to the 000-default site, but if I go to http://www.mysite.com it takes me to the correct place. Why is there a difference?

This is mysite.com vh file:

#NameVirtualHost *
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin nick@mysite.com
        ServerName mysite.com
        ServerAlias www.mysite.com *.mysite.com
        DocumentRoot /home/nick/www/mysite.com

        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/mysite.com/error.log

        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel info

        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/mysite.com/access.log common
        ServerSignature On


Best Solution

Using "_default_" virtual host may solve the problem: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/vhosts/examples.html#default

It is good practise to change default virtual host configuration to "_default_" after creating another virtual host configuration.
