In such cases what I usually recommend is:

  • First run an Apache config test to see if your config is OK:
apachectl -t
  • If you get Syntax OK then the config is not the problem if there is a problem with the config you would see an error and you could further investigate based on the error

  • If there are no errors with the config, then check your error log:

tail -100 /var/log/apache2/error.log
  • You could also check the status of your Apache:
systemctl status apache2

With all of the above information, you should be able to get to the bottom of the case.
