Ahh okay.  You'll probably find life easier if you configure all of the
sites as VirtualHosts.  Many strange problems can be found when mixing
VirtualHosts with standalone config.

satisfied that changing your main server into a virtualhost will fix the

Putting it into the hosts file on your PC should be enough to test.  Adding
it to the server can make life simpler, and is required if you are using
