Subject Re: [users@httpd] Attempt to serve DocumentRoot directory ?
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2007 04:39:45 GMT
Thanks  for you answer.
I found out that i maybe made a mistake,that gives me another question :

I discovered recently that another domain owner was pointing to my 
server (maybe in order to set me as duplicated content for google??..)

Since the first virtual host is the default for whatever url is pointing 
to my server i configured a virtual host without directives and that's 
the origin of my logs:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/dummy
     RewriteEngine On

<VirtualHost *:80>
#here the real configuration

Is there a way to do this hum.. more seriously ?
