Defining an ErrorDocument /file.html in the http.conf file makes the virtual hosts
try to find virtual.domain.mil/file.html whenever it should display that error
document instead of real.domain.mil/file.html. Defining with a complete URL works
fine but then the error codes are wrong making search engines whine (or their
I can't set up a "permanent" server like this but I can set up one upon request.
ErrorDocument 403 /error_htmls/accessdenied.html
ErrorDocument 404 /error_htmls/notfound.html
and then a virtual domain added to this and access http://virtual.domain.com/notfoundfile
will try to let you visit http://virtual.domain.com/error_htmls/notfound.html.

Maybe change r->server to the real server in die() in http_request.c before it
calls internal_redirect() but that would probably break custom ErrorDocuments
defined in .htaccess files. Otherwice one could add the server in the
conf->response_code_strings so the right server always is known.
A better way might be to add a new method for errordocuments to be specified
so you can specify an absolute filepath.
