Golly, thanks... okay, basically, it goes like this:

If you have a Host:-header based host, only those browsers that send Host:
headers will be able to see it. The ServerPath directive allows you to
make it so that all browsers, regardless, can get to that server. If I

<VirtualHost main.server.IP>
DocumentRoot /www/foo
ServerPath /foo

This means that a Host-header sending browser can access the server's
documents by using, yes, but it means that all
browsers can access it using It's functionally
similar to simply putting:

Alias /foo /www/foo

into the main server config, but it sets the server name correctly, logs
in the virtual host's logs, etc...
