The above does not work.  All get directed to the application.  I'm

# rpm -qi apache
Name        : apache                       Relocations: (not relocateable)
Version     : 1.3.27                            Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 3                             Build Date: Tue 02 Sep 2003 

on a RedHat 7.3 system.  Need more information?

Yeah, I'll probably try that, but this was quicker, since my

than a little fiddling with the vhosts... ;-)

Thanks for the tips, I'll look into it!  But, of course, I _would_
like to know why I can't get the vhost approach to work.. ;)
