Whoops - you're quite right. I was gettting mixed up with something like http://server/banana
(which causes a redirect if there is no file "banana" but there is a directory "banana") and
http://server/banana/ (which goes straight into the directory and looks for the DirectoryIndex).
In any case, my original suspicion was that he was getting the develop server by default because
his redirect was to the generic IP address, didn't match any VH ServerName and so took the
first which was develop. After looking at his config, it's probably not as simple as that
