Subject Re: [users@httpd] Problem with accessing Document Root (?)
Date Sun, 07 Jun 2015 14:23:48 GMT
Ubuntu changed the configuration to require config files end with ".conf".
You didn't give the full path, but since you said "In my virtual-sites
file", I was guessing that was /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/virtual-sites (or
conf.d/virtual-sites) which would need to be renamed in order to be loaded
under the new default Ubuntu configuration.
