 thanks matt 
Is it mandatory or not to have first vh as main server ? If we do not put first vh as main
server how can I acess a main server resources.

The first v.h. block is important in that any request for a host (servername) that is not
found in any other vh block defaults to the first block.

So on my servers in the top most block all requests are rewritten to a "please check the url"

Subject: [users@httpd] Apache Virtual Server Configuration

Is it mandatory to have first virtual server block as main server when we configure name based
virtual server on apache2.2.8  ? 
Creation of virtual servers: While creating virtual servers on apache 2.2.8 we have to include
a virtual host block for each virtual server we want to create and one virtual host block
for main server which should be kept at top of all blocks. The reason and description are
shown in the mentioned link. <>
please suggest if any work around ?
