I think the tutorial is a bit out of date.  I know on my ubuntu
server, I have to add the file to /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/, not
sites-available.  Typically, this is done by creating
sites-available/XXX, then linking sites-enabled/XXX to
sites-available/XXX.  I think the theory here is that this makes it
easier to disable a site if necessary without losing the config for
that site.

Of course, after linking, you'll have to restart apache again!
