I am trying to setup an Apache2 web server on Ubuntu 12.04

I can get a default web page to work ok

But I cannot get  VirtualHosts to work
Well at least that is what I believe to be the case.

When I define my virtual hosts in

I then run   a2ensite on that site-name

In /etc/apache2/sites-enabled it creates the correct link

However when I then try to visit the site I see error messages

File does not exist: /var/www/qwert

But in /etc/apache2/sites-available/qwert  there is a line

DocumentRoot /home/qwert

So why does it look in /var/www/qwert

The  Default DocumentRoot is /var/www

But I simply do not understand why it wants to look in /var/www/qwert 
and not /home/qwert

Any help whould be sincerely appreciated

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely
