Usually, you need the argument to NameVirtualHost to match, exactly,
the argument to VirtualHost. So, in your example, you should use
<VirtualHost *:80>

What you have there should work, but since it is missing the context of
the rest of the file, that is qualified by saying that there may be
conflicts with other stuff.

I'd recommend that you look at the Apache Vhosts examples document,
which contains examples of the most common virtual host configurations,
and follow one of the examples in there as close to verbatim as you can
get. That document may be found at:

or, for Apache 2.0,
