I will try again like you say and delete everything that I put in every
other files. I still have one question. Last night I copy my second site
main page, put it in the first site folder, and change the links to have the
first site open it where it was. It didn't work with my computer using
Ubuntu 7.10, but it worked with Windows.
If I try to see it with internet explorer and Firefox using Windows it
If I try to see it using Firefox and Ubuntu 7.10 I can't see neither the
links nor the other page?
Do I have to put it in the list of file, inside the host configuration?
I think I am missing something very easy and important but I have been
reading and searching and I didn't find out yet.
>From what you say I imagine that I don't have to add NameVirtualHost in
/etc/apache2/ports.conf. so I will delete it too. I have been trying  some
more last night and I am stuck.
Thank you for your answer, I will change the files back and let you know the
