apache2 error - namevirtualhost *:0 has no virtualhosts?

I'm trying to get my web server going and have tried to restarting apache but am getting the following error:

"namevirtualhost *:0 has no virtualhosts"

Any thoughts as to what causes this? I've set up my virtual host file in the /etc/apache2/sites-available and enabled directory's so I must be missing something obvious.

It's setup similar to this older question I found ( but I'm not using httpd.conf at all, should I be? I thought that was only for backward compatability.

Please post your config file so somebody could help but maybe you forget the number "8" in your first line like: NameVirtualHost *:80 because apache listens to 80 port (http) and be sure that in /etc/apache2/ports.conf there is the :
"Listen 80" line (without "") to make apache listen to port 80.

I was under the impression that if you didn't specify a port that it listened on "all" ports?

NameVirtualHost *

<VirtualHost *>

Now were talking about the actual Virtual Host file correct in the /sites-available folder? I simply copied 000-Default and renamed it to my host so I don't think it's wrong... but I'll post to be sure.

I'll verify the /etc/apache2/ports.conf and make sure port 80 is uncommented.



Just checked /etc/apache2/ports.conf and it's fine.
