NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts – Apache

When upgrading from one version of Linux (Ubuntu in my case) to another or while transferring your websites to a clean install it is common to encounter the following warning while starting/restarting apache:

NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts

This happens when hosts are defined in both /etc/apache2/sites-available/default as well as /etc/apache2/ports.conf.

SOLUTION:

Comment out the the following lines in /etc/apache2/ports.conf:

#NameVirtualHost *:80
#Listen 80

Then restart your apache using the following command and you should not see the warning.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache restart

Thats it.
