I have about 20+ virtual hosts.

In my Virtual Hosts Apache entries I have

<VirtualHost example.com:80 www.example.com:80>

I never have * as a domain name.

I do not have:   ServerAlias

I have:     ErrorLog  /xxxx/xxxx/err.xxxx

My advice is to simplify this

> DirectoryIndex Index.html index.html index.php Index.php

Have only index.html and index.php

Good Luck.


To solve the OPTIONS problem, you need to find the OPTIONS entries in
your Apache configurations files.


I do not understand how you can have multiple 'virtual hosts' all
sharing exactly the same domain name and port number.

My understanding is ONE virtual host = one domain.name

You can have:-


as 2 virtual hosts.
