Web Server trouble

I'm not sure if anyone can help me resolve my issues, but I am hoping that someone can. I have been an avid linux user for about 3 years, but recently decided to venture into the virtual hosting aspect of apache. The problem that I am having has to do with multiple domain names. I have two name servers setup ns1.realestateassistant.biz and ns2.realestateassistant.biz at two different locations with two totally different ip addresses. I can ping both machines and get 100% results back. I can access www.realestateassistant.biz, but the issue I am having is with www.petbirds.biz. I want to have an ip based virtual host for the name. I have added this address to my virtual host list with the following code.

# Virtual host petbirds.biz
DocumentRoot /var/www/petbirds/html/

ServerAdmin petbirds@petbirds.biz
ServerName ns1.realestateassistant.biz

ServerSignature email

<IfDefine HAVE_SSL>



I am pretty sure that the DNS is working correctly because I can ping the machines ip, www., and ns1., but I am not sure if I have all the parts put together properly. I would really apreciate any professional information that I can get. I read a whole bunch of books, but I must be a big ape because I still can't get it to work right. I want to be able to host the www.petbirds.biz and allow the individual to remote access the machine via ftp and change the information within as well as allow them https for secure encryption. I have updated some information. If more detail is needed such as code from resolv or other files to resolve my issue please let me know. Thank you very much.
Ryan Wolf.

Do you have a NameVirtualHost directive in your httpd.conf, as below?


ServerName yourdomain.com
[...rest of your config options]

The code that I have there is in the httpd.conf. I have tried several different ways of entering the virtual host. I think I mentioned that I was looking for an ip based virtual host so that I can use ssl. Things that I have tried but have had no luck are, editing httpd.conf manually, using webmin, and entering the data in through gui. The code that I typed in is what Linux put in after I entered the information in the virtual host through gui in http services option.
