2.0.40 is a rather old version of apache, but it is highly unlikely that
that is your problem.

On the other hand, it is impossible to tell what your problem is because
"cannot access" is way too vague!  What exactly happens?  What do you see
in your browser?  What do you see in your error log?  What changes have
you made to the default configuration.

Based on the fact that it works from some places but not others, the most
likely cause is an incorrect ServerName messing up a trailing-slash
But that is just a guess.
