Linode server still showing "It Works" page after file upload

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

My issue seems simple, but I cannot for the life of me figure this out.

Simply put, my Linode server is still showing “It Works” page, even after I uploaded a “index.html” file to the “”home/myuser/” directory.

After doing a bunch of things with Linode support, this is what they finally said:

“I apologize, I’m unsure why your virtual host configuration isn’t being used. It is certainly odd that despite the changes we continue to see the “It works!” page. Please consult the community.”

So, that’s where I am at.

I did just try to redo VirtualHosts again, and during it, it gave me three errors which seem to be at the root of this issue:

sudo a2dissite default
ERROR: Site default does not exist!

mkdir public mkdir:
cannot create directory ‘public’: File exists

sudo a2ensite
ERROR: Site does not exist!

You guys are my only hope.
