Apache wont work on my VPS

I just re-installed ubuntu and installed apache2 again, it now works for some reason.

Thank you for your answer. I have the default apache homepage in my document root, which should have been displayed instead of the 404.
I also created a simple text html, which does not work either.

404 means the server is up and running, but the path you are looking for does not exist; this is normal on a new installation, and your DocumentRoot is probably empty.

So apache is actually running. If it wasn't, you would get a different error, something about connection problems.

As the title says, I have been re-installing my Ubuntu 14.04 VPS and Apache2 a few times already, but I keep getting a "Server Error: 404" page, as if Apache was not installed (I get the same page when I enter my VPS IP in my browser without having Apache2 installed).

After installation, I also checked the config and the directory is set up correctly.
I never had this issue on other hosts, and google also wont help me find a sollution.

This is really confusing me.
