My dedicated web server has been configured and running fine for over 2 months now. I've made no configuration changes to the server in over a month and have had 17 sites running there since the end of August.

I do NOT run cpanel on my server and I'm not YET running ISPConfig. Each of my sites were set up manually using the standard Apache virtual host definition files in /etc/apache2/sites-available and sites-enabled setup

Then suddenly this evening the sites started disappearing one by one and were replaced with a screen whose heading says:

Great Success! Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server

As I said, I do NOT run cpanel on my server at all and I'm not YET running ISPConfig either. Each of my sites was set up manually using the standard Apache virtual host definition files and they've all been working fine for weeks.

So, why the hell am I suddenly getting this apache and cpanel message and how do I get rid of it? Although the files in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled and sites-available seem to be intact, I can't for the life of me figure out why I'm now getting this message?

Can anyone offer me a CLUE as to what would cause this to happen?

For the record, I have spot checked the individual domains and their files in the separate web accounts. From what I can tell, everything seems to be intact and present in the web accounts. It was just a cursory spot check, of course; but from what i can see, the web domains and their files all seem to be untouched.

SO, what in the world would cause apache to suddenly NOT be able to find the web domains it has been able to locate since August?

Are you accessing the site with the domain or the IP Address? If the former, are you sure the domain is point to the correct IP Address?
