I have just installed this server with Ubuntu server 12.10 and then installed Apache2, however now when I run service apache2 reload or service apache2 restart it claims to have succeeded in updating but actually, it does not update, here is the problem:

root@sbh1:/etc/apache2# a2dissite 000-default
Site default already disabled
root@sbh1:/etc/apache2# a2dissite default-ssl
Site default-ssl disabled.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  service apache2 reload
root@sbh1:/etc/apache2# service apache2 reload

Why is the default site still broadcasting? If I enable other sites they do not start broadcasting either.

What is the contents of httpd.conf and 000-default? – Chris Down Nov 9 '12 at 17:17
What are the outputs for apachectl -S and netstat -tlnp|grep -w 80? Is the shown PID actually a httpd-process? – Nils Nov 9 '12 at 21:28
