 In addition, even the original website does not work anymore (which that should not change
because of the new site.)

I asume you have eitehr debian or a debian derived distro like ubuntu,
from your references to a2enmod and a2ensite.

Under debian the default apache config doesn't allow proxying. See the
file /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/proxy.conf.
Thsi is to avoid you creating an open relay by accident.

So you need to enable it explicitely for your virtualhost.

Ad the following in your VirtualHost block:

<Proxy /*>
Order deny, allow
Allow from All
