Is there another VH container that could be allowing access via a ScriptAlias or something?
There is no other virtual host. But a scriptalias tag which is described below.

yes. I am trying to access like this:

a FQDN in a VH, it's better to use an IP address (with an FQDN, apache needs functinal DNS
to start. And it's slower).
I have just hide the original domain name due to security issues


I have a ScriptAlias directive like this :
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/localhost/cgi-bin/
When I commented it then another error occured "404 Not Found"

if this directive is uncommented then again it doesn't ask for authentication.
