Yes, its possible to do just as you are trying... and I would question 
whether the <VirtualHost> section is even being recognized for the site 
in question?  If after I have confirmed the working of the <VirtualHost> 
section, I might check to make sure there isn't a .htaccess being picked up 
overriding the Global setting.

For, a sample VirtualHost config, here's what I use for NodeWorks
and Apache::ASP sites:


  Include conf/nodeworks/html.conf
  PerlSetVar StatScripts 0

  DocumentRoot /usr/local/proj/mlink/site/asp
  Include conf/nodeworks/asp.conf
