You need to "show your work", i.e., at least the relevant parts of
your virtualhost configuration and the directory list showing the
documentroot for this virtualhost.

I suspect you are mixing concepts (servername vs. documentroot), and
likely not fully understanding what a virtualhost is and how one
would access it via a web server.

Do you control the domain "", or is this just an
obscured reference to the real domain you are using?
