Sorry, I don't know about VirtualDocumentRoot (never used it, don't
really know what it's for), but if you mean that you're using PHP to
see what the DocumentRoot is, for instance, I think a better test is
to just set up different pages in the different document roots and
test it that way (i.e., see which page gets served).

In my set up, I use a different vhost container for each host, and
they each have their own DocumentRoot.
