In what way is it not working ? Are there any relevant messages in your logs and in the browser? –  Iain Aug 16 '13 at 20:09
@Iain: If I run www.example.com in browser I have: It works! This is the default web page for this server. The web server software is running but no content has been added, yet. From http://example.com work fine. –  user2659960 Aug 16 '13 at 20:10
Well, either you are reaching the wrong server, or your virtual host config is messed up somehow. –  Zoredache Aug 16 '13 at 20:23
Check your DNS to ensure that www.example.com and example.com point to the same IP address. –  Iain Aug 16 '13 at 20:25

It looks like www.example.com and example.com are not teh same machine. Check your DNS and ensure that www.example.com and example.com resolve to the same IP address.

Take appropriate action.
