I am trying to set up a web server on my private network to host two websites. There is an existing website that was set up when Apache2 was installed. This site is used for testing and learning to code html and css. I want to host another website on the same server running Wordpress. All the prerequisites for Wordpress are present. Here is my current setup:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.7 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

mysqld Ver 5.7.31-0ubuntu0.16.04.1 for Linux on x86_64 ((Ubuntu))

PHP 7.4.9 (cli) (built: Aug 7 2020 14:29:10) ( NTS )
Copyright (c) The PHP Group
Zend Engine v3.4.0, Copyright (c) Zend Technologies
with Zend OPcache v7.4.9, Copyright (c), by Zend Technologies

The Wordpress files were extracted to /var/www/sample/.
The ownership and permissions set to www-data.
A .conf file for each site was created in the sites-available folder.
Symlinks for each are in the sites-enabled folder.

The server was rebooted. The original website is reachable and behaves as usual. The new Wordpress site is unreachable. “The requested URL was not found on this server.”

I am sure that there is something that is not configured correctly or missing.
Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.
