What errors?  Really, what error, _exactly_?

The exact error is usually a clear pointer to the problem.  "no page found"
sounds like a Microsoftism that prevents you from seeing the real error and
thus makes it more difficult to diagnose the problem.

Scroll to the bottom of the error page, an HTTP error should have a number.
This will help you track down the problem.

Also, what's in your Apache logs?  Did you check the Apache error log?  Did
you check the access log to see if you're even reaching your server?  It
could be a DNS problem and have nothing to do with Apache.
