10.04 adding new domain/virtual host not working.

So I followed the steps here:

http://library.linode.com/lamp-guides/u … .04-lucid/">http://library.linode.com/lamp-guides/ubuntu-10.04-lucid/

The whois record shows the updated name servers pointing to ns1.linode.com etc.

If I ping www.cardinaltogo.com results in an unknown host error. I have tried reloading and rebooting my server, and other websites served up by the linode are still running.

My virtualhost file looks like this:

 <virtualhost xxx:80="">ServerAdmin matt.sencenbaugh@gmail.com
        ServerName cardinaltogo.com
        ServerAlias www.cardinaltogo.com
        DocumentRoot /srv/www/cardinaltogo.com/public_html/
        ErrorLog /srv/www/cardinaltogo.com/logs/error.log
        CustomLog /srv/www/cardinaltogo.com/logs/access.log combined</virtualhost> 

And all the logs are created as well as an index.html in the public_html folder.

I've followed this process before but am stumped as to why it didn't work this time. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It appears to be working OK here, and I get your index.html (I presume; it says "Works"). What happens when you try dig from your local machine? If I had to guess, your local nameserver has a negative response cached, and it's waiting for the TTL on that to expire.

$ dig www.cardinaltogo.com
