doesn't work.  my dirac.org configs were "global".  not within a
virtualhost stanza.  the www.liberal.ws stuff was inside a virtualhost
stanza.

after weeing lewis's conf file, i figured i'd try to make my conf file
look more like his: both dirac.org and liberal.ws inside virtualhost
stanzas.


this gave 404's on both domains:

<VirtualHost 64.142.25.39>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   DocumentRoot /www/p/linux
   ServerName www.liberal.ws
   ServerAlias liberal.ws
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/test_error
   LogLevel warn
   CustomLog /var/log/apache/test_access common
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost 64.142.25.39>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   DocumentRoot /www
   ServerName www.dirac.org
   ServerAlias dirac.org
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/error.log
   LogLevel warn
   CustomLog /var/log/apache/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>


However, this set documentroot to both dirac.org and liberal.ws:

 
<VirtualHost www.liberal.ws>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   DocumentRoot /www/p/linux
   ServerName www.liberal.ws
   ServerAlias liberal.ws
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/test_error
   LogLevel warn
   CustomLog /var/log/apache/test_access common
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost www.dirac.org>
   ServerAdmin p@dirac.org
   DocumentRoot /www
   ServerName www.dirac.org
   ServerAlias dirac.org
   ErrorLog /var/log/apache/error.log
   LogLevel warn
   CustomLog /var/log/apache/access.log combined
</VirtualHost>


oi.  this is not fun.      :-(
