Can you give a link to what you just mentioned.

what ServerName/ServerAlias should I use for default vhost.
I am asking this question because when on localmachine i.e. webserver
in browser we type http://localhost
on Ubuntu based systems we get an html page saying it works.
localhost in this case as per our discussion if I understand correctly
is being served by the default vhost configuration.
which on Ubuntu systems is
how is localhost hooked up because when I am requesting
http://localhost I am not requesting any  particular vhost which
ServerName localhost or ServerAlias localhost.
I want to read more about how apache handles vhost so that in future I
do not have such problems.If you know some link please share here.
