    when a client creates a name based acount, they see the server IP files on their site.. even after the domain resolves.

    soycal.com - see?

    Are the name-based virtual accounts sharing the same IP as the server's hostname? If they are and if you have a virtual account set up for the hostname in httpd.conf then that's what they will see.

    wierd.. yes they are using the server hostname ip.
    i uncommented the &NameVirtualHost 209.x.x.x& for the domains, and it seemed to fix it..

    weird, but yeah

    NameVirtualHost 209.x.x.x is what enables virtual hosting ;). But I agree, it sounds weird that you just take out a simple # sign and boom ... things suddenly spring to life !
