At first glance what you did is entirely correct. However your apache
instance might be confused by other virtualhost declarations. You say
you are doing this on Ubuntu, right? Are you using the apache that
comes with Ubuntu?

If so, could you tell us the following:
- What file under /etc/apache2 did you modify?
- What is the output of apache2ctl  -S?
