my virtual host setup. Indeed, I can reach by IP address and the connection
is logged under the virtual host. However, when I try to use the domain
name, I get a connection refused error. The httpd.conf file is pretty much

line at the bottom. I pretty much followed the article on the wiki. I am
leaning towards a DNS issue but my domain properly resolves to the correct
IP address. The IP address is What could I have missed?

# /etc/httpd/conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf
<VirtualHost *:80>

    DocumentRoot "/home/user/public_html"
    ServerName "goblackcat.com"
    ServerAlias "www.goblackcat.com"
    ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/goblackcat.com-error_log"
    CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/goblackcat.com-access_log" common
