apache 2 default page shown in stead of website after moving to new sever


I got a new sever, it runs ubuntu 16.4 and was completely fresh. I then installed virtualmin using the install script. All went fine.

I then went back to my old sever, backed up the different websites and unpacked them, using restore, on the new server.

(the old server has older stuff: php5 in stead of 7, Ubuntu Linux 14.04.1in stead of 16.04, but webmin and virtualmin versions are the same)

Now, when I try to see them, I see the default apache page, which says:

Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page It works! This is the default welcome page used to test the correct operation of the Apache2 server after installation on Ubuntu systems. It is based on the equivalent page on Debian, from which the Ubuntu Apache packaging is derived. If you can read this page, it means that the Apache HTTP server installed at this site is working properly. You should replace this file (located at /var/www/html/index.html) before continuing to operate your HTTP server. If you are a normal user of this web site and don't know what this page is about, this probably means that the site is currently unavailable due to maintenance. If the problem persists, please contact the site's administrator.

The error and access logs of the websites are empty.

I tried googling and this forum, but haven't been able to come up with a solution so far.

Where do I start?
