Apache Configuration Question

How to debug an apache virtual host configuration?

Once again, I have a problem with my apache virtual host configuration. (The default configuration is used instead of my specific one).

The problem is not really the misconfiguration but how to solve it.

Does anyone has good advices to do resolve this kind of problem quickly?

Some more informations.

The default conf file is this one:

NameVirtualHost *
<VirtualHost *>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

DocumentRoot /var/www/
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
</Directory>
<Directory /var/www/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
<Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

# Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
# alert, emerg.
LogLevel warn

CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined
ServerSignature On

Alias /doc/ "/usr/share/doc/"
<Directory "/usr/share/doc/">
Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 ::1/128
</Directory>

</VirtualHost>


And the virtual host config that doesn't apply is this one:

<VirtualHost *:*>

ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyPass / http://ip.ip.ip.ip:8088/
ProxyPassReverse / http://ip.ip.ip.ip:8088/
ServerName wiki.mydomain.com

</VirtualHost>
