Subdomain is not working, debian, apache

I use debian jessie, apache. I am not allowed to post links here at this forum, I am new user.
I made subdomain and it is working, vhost file is porodin.conf in /etc/apache2/sites-available
then I copied vhost file and made it hosting.conf, did a2ensite hosting and it is OK:
root@vmi50113:~# a2ensite hosting
Site hosting already enabled

but it is not working when I type in firefox:

both files are identical except DocumentRoot folder:
porodin screnshot:
hosting screenshot:

file permissions are the same in html folder:
drwxrwxr-x  2 www-data root  4096 Oct  4 14:17 hosting
drwxrwxr-x  3 www-data root  4096 Oct  4 12:05 porodin

despite being identical, one subdomain is working, another one is not working.
any help?

Did you restart apache after changing the config file?

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

yes, I did restart apache many times during work on other things, this problem is the same several days, it is not from today. I rebooted VPS several times also but the problem is still there.

Try disabling and enabling the site.

Try intentionally putting a syntax error in the file, just to see if it's actually being included at all, a2ensite often causes much madness.

If that doesn't work, we may need to see the contents.

thank you for answers Smilie
I found out what mistake I made:
I forgot to make subdomain, A record ("hosting" and IP address) at my domain control panel (namecheap), now I made it and it is working.
so, problem is solved, if anybody in the future has similar problem, in this case, it was DNS problem...

Glad the problem was solved, thanks for letting us know. It's also possible to set a "catch all" for URL's so "" can work without being preconfigured in DNS.
