Subject Re: [users@httpd] httpd won't start

Take a look at  Although this is
specific to Apache 2.1+, there are similar pages for each major version. 
Find yours.

The lines you quoted originally actually had a couple of issues. 
Specifically, in order to do name based virtual hosting you need this
directive to start;

NameVirtualHost (or whatever IP:port you are using)

In each of VirtualHost sections you need to specify an IP, or say
_default_:* as the argument to VirtualHost, like this;

<VirtualHost _default_:*>
  DocumentRoot /www/docs/

Also, notice the ServerName directive.  It's required for name based
virtual hosts.

Hope this helps.
