name in virtual hosts

I have the following code in /etc/apache2/sites-available/testSite


       DocumentRoot /var/www/turnos
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        ServerAlias www.test.com
        ServerName test.com

When i enter the ip all works well, go directly to the turnos folder, but how I can make the alias and server name to work?

Do you have DNS records configured for "www.test.com" and "test.com" so that it resolves to your server's IP address?

Also if you server is behind a router, and you are accessing it from your external WAN IP address, you may need to change the configuration so that it will work for any IP address instead of just the E.g.:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
       DocumentRoot /var/www/turnos
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        ServerAlias www.test.com
        ServerName test.com

One of the typical problems I have experienced is when you have to move a web server from one hosting site to another. You normally prepare all on the new host, transfer the site, change DNS and cross your fingers hoping all will be ok on new server…
