Apache VirtualHosts Problem

Hey guys, ok a really annoying problem iv got:

righto, iv setup apache with php on my new server, got it configured up, and added some virtualhost's, except, now if i access the one virtual host, it works fine, yet if i shove in any old host (that resolves to the server) the server goes to the virtual host, rather than the default one which is meant to catch it all, and basically, everything goes to the one virtual host. Iv looked over and over the config, and cant see anything wrong.

Anyone got any idea's? here's the config

This catchall only works for ip based virtual hosts not name based. Try replacing <VirtualHost_default_> with <VirtualHost>

If you have multiple name based vhosts why not do this

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs/whatever/
ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/
CustomLog /var/log/apache2/ common

Then throw in the following if you want Users to have a cgi-bin
<Directory /home/*/public_html/cgi-bin/>
Options ExecCGI
SetHandler cgi-script

BTW - Your httpd.conf is very sloppy and will have update problems in the future when you update apache... I suggest making a seperate file for your Virtual Hosts - this makes the world a cleaner place and easier for you to update in the future...

make a file called httpd.conf.local <--- like it suggest in your httpd.conf
Put your VirtualHosts here along with your CGI stuff

Then edit /etc/sysconfig/apache2
and where it says APACHE_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES set that to /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local
