    Just noticed that unlike IPv4 address IPv6 address is not automatically chosen. *
    More and more servers do not come with IPv4 address which causes new website to default to Apache default website on /var/www/html/index.html.
    This causes confusion.

    The * wildcard in apache includes IPv4 and IPv6 as far as I know, so choosing * in the IPv4 field should be enough for IPv6 as well.

    if you set ipv4 to * and leave ipv6 empty, the site will listen to ipv4 and ipv6 - on apache and nginx

    Should... but doesn't.
    At least if you have previously defined an IPv6 address.
    You have to use the pulldown menu and choose it first.

    But that's the same as with IPv4, don't mix * and IP addresses in website settings as an IP is a stronger match than a wildcard.
