That's an odd thing to do. Not sure if it'll do any harm, though. And
I seem to recall that you can just leave it out, for the server to work
out the servername itself.

What I understand is that in the <VirtualHost IPaddress:Port> opening
clause, the IP address and port are what the server is listening to for
connections. If you put a DNS address in there, the server will have to
be able to resolve it to an IP. Can it? Are the names resolving
Also, there's warnings about not putting a trailing slash on the
directory paths for various configuration details. Try removing that.
Mine are set up thus:
ServerAdmin test at example.com
and so on....
(I keep my virtual directories outside of the main document root.)
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
