No, for good reasons given by someone before.

But, the fundamental reason for your problem is : someone removed the 
file in /etc/apache2/sites-available, without using the correct way to 
do so.
What should have been removed is the /link/ in 
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled, and not vice-versa.

By the way, this is an issue that concerns the way that the Linux 
(Debian ?) Apache packagers configure their Apache package for that 
system, and not an Apache issue.

Also look up the commands : a2ensite, a2dissite, a2enmod, a2dismod that 
are part of the same Apache/Linux package.
