  +  <P>
  +  In versions of Apache prior to 1.3b2, there was a lot of confusion
  +  regarding address-based virtual hosts and (HTTP/1.1) name-based
  +  virtual hosts, and the rules concerning how the server processed
  +  <SAMP>&lt;VirtualHost&gt;</SAMP> definitions were very complex and
not
  +  well documented.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  Apache 1.3b2 introduced a new directive,
  +  <A
  +   HREF="http://www.apache.org/docs/mod/core.html#namevirtualhost"
  +  ><SAMP>NameVirtualHost</SAMP></A>,
  +  which simplifies the rules quite a bit.  However, changing the rules
  +  like this means that your existing name-based
  +  <SAMP>&lt;VirtualHost&gt;</SAMP> containers probably won't work
  +  correctly immediately following the upgrade.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  To correct this problem, add the following line to the beginning of
  +  your server configuration file, before defining any virtual hosts:
  +  </P>
  +  <DL>
  +   <DD><CODE>NameVirtualHost <EM>n.n.n.n</EM></CODE>
  +   </DD>
  +  </DL>
  +  <P>
  +  Replace the &quot;<SAMP>n.n.n.n</SAMP>&quot; with the IP address
to
  +  which the name-based virtual host names resolve; if you have multiple
  +  name-based hosts on multiple addresses, repeat the directive for each
  +  address.
  +  </P>
  +  <P>
  +  Make sure that your name-based <SAMP>&lt;VirtualHost&gt;</SAMP> blocks
  +  contain <SAMP>ServerName</SAMP> and possibly <SAMP>ServerAlias</SAMP>
  +  directives so Apache can be sure to tell them apart correctly.
