OK, I still think you're right this is some knd of config issue, but
the more research I do, the more it seems I'm properly configured!
on this Apache 2 doc page
it gives an example which, when I try to follow it, I get:
Starting httpd: [Fri Jan 03 19:38:58 2003] [error] VirtualHost
mixing * ports and non-* ports with a NameVirtualHost address is not
proceeding with undefined results
[ OK ]
which when tested, doesn't work as a vhost server. I grepped "443" on
all of the conf files- I can't see where that is even coming from 443
isn't used in the files. I think that may be the problem however- I
need to locate the source of that port 443..
