First, we *need* to know the names of the files involved, since the
alphabetical order of the files determines which is the default host
(the first host is default, so you should have
sites-enabled/000-default and sites-enabled/001-dirac).

Did you verify that this is the correct IP address? (You probably want
to use "*:80" instead.)

You don't have a ServerName for the default site. Is it
possible that the default is catching all of the requests since it has
no name? Give it a name. Since it's the default (its configuration
file comes first alphabetically), it will still respond
to any unknown hostnames passed in the host header.

The link I quote below says:
"ServerName should always be set for each vhost. Otherwise A DNS lookup
is required for each vhost."
