For what it's worth : from your description, I think you're right, and 
at the bottom there is probably some Apache misconfiguration.
The problem is that you do not have a "clean" Apache installation such 
as you would have by downloading Apache from the Apache website and 
installing it.
Your Apache installation is at the bottom the re-packaged Ubuntu 
version, which puts Apache files in a bunch of different places than the 
standard version. (It is fine for Ubuntu, it just does not make it easy 
to help you here).
Then on top of that, you have installed Joomla, which probably made more 
changes to the Apache/Ubuntu configuration.  That makes it even more 
difficult for people here to unravel the puzzle and help you.
The summary is that I believe your best bet for now, is to try the 
Joomla forum for help first, and explain your problem.
The Ubuntu forum would be next..

I'll just give you a few tips based on what I know of Debian, which is I 
believe similar to Ubuntu.

The Apache configuration files are all under /etc/apache2.
The standard Debian configuration installs a "main host", and one 
"default" VirtualHost.
The "main" configuration (read first) is in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf.
The "default site" configuration (which overrides the main one), is in 
The "top" of the Apache documents tree (iow what you get when you ask 
for "http://hostname/") is at the location indicated in the
line of /etc/apache2/sites-available/default.
The on-line Apache documentation, explaining all the Apache 
configuration directives, is at
look at "Run-time configuration directives"

Good luck.
