Apache 2 Virtual Hosts not resolving

Hey all,

I'm having some apache problems. I've installed apache countless times on FreeBSD. However, I'm having some problems and I could use some help. Here is my system info:

FreeBSD 5.2.1
Apache 2.0.51 (/usr/local/apache2), doc root (/www symlink to /var/www)
PHP 5.0.1 (/usr/local/php)
MySQL 4.1.3 (/usr/local/mysql)
AMD 1.5Ghz/512MB

I am using a DNS hosting provider to point serveral domains to my IP address. From there my router passes all port 80 requests to my web/email server. Once to my server, Apache uses the Virtual Host to forward to the right site directory.

Well my domains to get to my site, however apache isn't routing the domain requests to the right folders; my default domain is showing up. Here are a few lines from my httpd.conf file i thought might be useful for your help:

ServerRoot "/usr/local/apache2"
DocumentRoot "/www"

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /www/
ErrorLog logs/
CustomLog logs/ common
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /www/
<VirtualHost *>
DocumentRoot /www/

all these directories exists, but for some reason only my primary domain shows up. So if I goto, I do see its homepage. If I goto I see

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!

Problems can arise from the client not sending the required information for name-based virtual hosts, this results in the server sending back the first virtual host listed.

Happens mostly with older browsers.

Well this happens from every computer I've tried to access the sites from.

For instance 4 of my test case computers are running IE 6+ and Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3. Any other suggestions?
