I am having the error after I used `a2ensite MyDomain.com.conf` then reload the apache2 `service apache2 reload`

Asked by Cody Cortez on 2017-11-29

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS hosted on Linode.

What I want is to reload the apache2 after i used the `a2ensite MyDamain.com.conf`. But I am having the error after I used `a2ensite MyDomain.com.conf` then reload the apache2 `service apache2 reload`

The error after the command is

`Job for apache2.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status apache2.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
`

When I used `system status apache2.service`, I get these results :

 `
