How is this one going? I’m bit late and I hope it got working for you.

Anyways, this is not a error, as you see it’s a warn. That mean it warnings you about potential problem but Apache should be working.

What I recommend you to do is to run config tests.
If you run:

  • sudo apachectl configtest

it’ll test your Apache configuration for syntax errors.

Example output of configtest
  • AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message
  • Syntax OK

It does show warning, but syntax is OK and Apache is working well.

Verify that your site is enabled. You can list all enabled sites with ls:

  • sudo ls -l /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/

Or try to enable site again with sudo a2ensite site-name.
