This is a big no go! Be sure you have a line in /etc/hosts looking as:   localhost.localdomain   localhost

Without that line localhost is unresolvable and causes a lot of pain.
Maybe that is already all what's causing you trouble?

Does the main server work? If it does the vhost configuration and where
you defined it would helpful for detecting the error. Is /home/rpaiz set
to chmod 711?
