I haven't got round to playing with the Saucy Salamander (13.10) yet,
however on the assumption that it's configuration is organised previous
versions, the following lines should be present near the end of file

# Include ports listing
Include ports.conf

File /etc/apache2/ports.conf should contain the following lines:

NameVirtualHost *:80
Listen 80

These lines should be present by default, however if things aren't
working for you then it may be worth opening these files to double check
that they're there.
