another (possibly overkill) solution is Interface Aliases

each with their own IP address and switching to IP based virtual hosting.For an example, I used it once to host multiple SSL based websites on the same server.

If all you want is to be able to access the site with

Then just put you sites under...

The you can access it with...

http://<ip address>/site1
http://<ip address>/site2
http://<ip address>/site3
http://<ip address>/site4

Something in Newznab's configuration or the way the app was written... Outside of a VH it wouldnt work... It was constantly searching for the scripts and php files under /www/ (Apache's root) whereas in real life the files were under /www/newznab/www/ (where they should be). I believe it is because whoever wrote newznab had in mind that it would be the main web application running on the webserver but in my case, its not.

With VH, all is fine now!!!!

Thanks to all who helped here!

Can you post your final diffs from the files you changed? I would like to see your final solution.

Of course! let me know exactly what you want to see in my config..

For now, apache's extra vhost config file:

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName localhost
    DocumentRoot /var/www/htdocs/

<VirtualHost *:80>
	ServerName newznabplus
	<Directory /var/www/htdocs/newznabplus/www/>
		Options FollowSymLinks
		AllowOverride All
		Order allow,deny
		allow from all
	DocumentRoot /var/www/htdocs/newznabplus/www
I did not change anything else.... Once this file was modified, all was fine...
