The above was an issue reported by @mifu7913.

It seems like you didn’t create an Apache Vhost file or the name of the configuration file is different.

  • To create a vhost after apache has been installed I’ll recommend checking the following article

It’s already added to the intial tutorial but in case you missed it, please do check it out.

  • Chaning the name of the configuration file
mv /etc/apache2/sites-available/your_domain.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/NewName.conf

Please be sure to change the your_domain.conf and NewName.conf with the real values.

A "LAMP" stack is a group of open source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This stack typically consists of the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, a MySQL database, and PHP, a dynamic content processor. This tutorial serves as a guide for installing these components on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.
