I'm afraid it's so, at least according to
]The notable difference between IP-based and name-based virtual host
]configuration is the NameVirtualHost directive which specifies an IP
]address that should be used as a target for name-based virtual hosts.
]Of course, any additional directives can (and should) be placed into
]the <VirtualHost> section. To make this work, all that is needed is to
]make sure that the name www.domain.tld points to the IP address
Essentially, 'NameVirtualHost 126.96.36.199' appears as a declaration
outside the <VirtualHost></VirtualHost> declarations.
The important bit is the next paragraph:
]Note: When you specify an IP address in a NameVirtualHost directive
]then requests to that IP address will only ever be served by matching
]<VirtualHost>s. The "main server" will never be served from the
]specified IP address.
Therefore, the "main server" must be of a different IP address to the IP
address used to serve all of the virtual domains.
PS: I did follow those instructions you quoted initially. It was in
re-reading them when they weren't working that I found the above.
