Running apachectl - S provides following;

[Sun Sep 01 11:00:41 2013] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:80 has no VirtualHosts
VirtualHost configuration:
Syntax OK

Content of /etc/hosts is: localhost yyy.com www.xxx.com.local www.zzz.com.local

No matter what I do, when I run a browser and go to a vhost, it just gives me the doc root and shows the 3 dirs representing the 3 sites I have.

Any help would be very very very very much appreciated.

Change <VirtualHost *:80>

<VirtualHost ipaddress:80>
<VirtualHost ipaddress:80 ipaddress2:80 ....>

ipaddress can be internal or external.

AHHHHH,..... u guided me to the error. I have .80 in the virtual host declaration and it should have been :80! A needle in a haystack! Anyway, many thanks!

... and once it's working, change this bit

<Directory />
AllowOverride All

unless you are 100% certain that you know better than the Apache docs :) Or if it's just meant to be temporary while you get the server running, where "temporary" = no more than 72 hours. Overrides in deeper directories will depend on circumstances.
