Windigo helps NYbill as he trys to set up mutiple servers on his VPS by explaining the stucture of the vhost file.

NameVirtualHost *:80

#this first virtualhost enables: http://127.0.0.1, or: http://localhost, 
#to still go to /srv/http/*index.html(otherwise it will 404_error).
#the reason for this: once you tell httpd.conf to include extra/httpd-vhosts.conf, 
#ALL vhosts are handled in httpd-vhosts.conf(including the default one),
# E.G. the default virtualhost in httpd.conf is not used and must be included here, 
#otherwise, only domainname1.dom & domainname2.dom will be accessible
#from your web browser and NOT http://127.0.0.1, or: http://localhost, etc.

Just a follow up tip. While making changes to MediaGoblin's theme, I would check the site in a browser. But, the changes didn't seem to work.

It didn't dawn on me until I had apache shut down, and was still able to see my site, that I was being shown the page from Firefox's cache.

So, when making changes, remember to clear your browser cache.

I really enjoyed this episode. It was actually nice to hear the troubles and resolutions and how it all worked. Should do a few more episodes like this. The format was great IMHO!
