yet another 404 problem
only absolute URLs work on some virtual hosts

i have been using the following line successfully on one of our virtual hosts.

ErrorDocument 404 /404.html

the httpd.conf looks like this:

<Directory />
AllowOverride AuthConfig FileInfo
Options FollowSymlinks Multiviews

<Directory /usr/local/apache/sites/virtualhost.com>
AllowOverride All
Options FollowSymlinks IncludesNoExec Multiviews

but in another virtual host which i have set up identically, only an absolute URL works:

ErrorDocument 404 [virtualhost2.com...]

this is not optimal, because the old URL is not left in the browserbar, and i think the actual header sent is a 302.

i have double and triple checked all my syntax, and can't find any errors, but i think it must be something silly which i've missed? it's so odd that it works in one site and not in the other!

many thanks

PatrickDeese is struggling with the exact same problem over here [webmasterworld.com]. You two may want to compare notes.
