Hello all,

I am having a very trivial problem with NMVH. Apache is a rather new 
land for me and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong, even after 
reading FAQ and manuals.
Basically I want to set up 2 NMVH to make apache point to 2 sites I have 
on my local machine.
What I have done:
1. added the domains and to the hosts file, it 
now looks like this:        localhost.localdomain localhost

2. added 2 VH to httpd.conf:
NameVirtualHost http://localhost:80
<VirtualHost http://localhost>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/html
<VirtualHost  http://localhost>
    DocumentRoot /home/bask/documents/sites/foo2

3. called both and from the 
browser. They both point to /var/www/html, the DocumentRoot of the first VH.
The question is: how can I activate the second VH?

And secondly, when the second VH will work:
a. what kind of file permissions should I give to its DocumentRoot? the 
same owner:group as defined in httpd.conf?
b. how can I make apache see the files in the DocumentRoot?

Thank you!
