Just a few additional notes from experience:

- if you do include log files/directories and cgi directories in the VirtualHost
definition, make sure to create those directories first and then (re)start
httpd/apachectl. You will get some unidentified error if those directories
(as well as the root directory for the domain) are not created ahead of time.

- commenting out information of the default directory in the httpd.conf file
renders less errors.

- this is the format i have (with modified data, of course)

    ServerAdmin webmaster at domain.com
    DocumentRoot /www/directory/domain
    ServerName name.domain.com
    ErrorLog /www/directory/domain/logs/error.log
    CustomLog  /www/directory/domain/logs/access.log common
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/www/directory/domain/cgi/"

    <Directory "/www/directory/domain/cgi/">
        AllowOverride None
        Options None
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

> # If you want to use name-based virtual hosts you need to define at
> # least one IP address (and port number) for them.
> #
> #NameVirtualHost
> #NameVirtualHost

     ^^ the NameVirtualHost lines go before the <VirtualHost> definitions
