<VirtualHost SERVER-IP:80>
ServerName host.hostname.com
ServerAlias www.host.hostname.com
ServerAdmin xyz@mail.com
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/"

<IfModule mod_suexec.c>
        SuexecUserGroup nobody nobody

<IfModule mod_suphp.c>
        suPHP_UserGroup nobody nobody

<Directory "/usr/local/apache/htdocs">
