Why is the server name and port different to the virtual host?

comment Which file is processed first, index.php, index.htm or index.html?
No, Apache configs are way too simple for me to fork out $500 a year for a GUI.

comment How to configure apache server with localhost virtual host
No, really ServerName, the characters "S", then "e" and so on. You are trying to say "The ServerName is 127.0.0.1" not "localhost is 120.0.0.1".

comment How to spawn-fcgi multiple fcgi processes?
Why do you want to? Any decent server should spawn processes on demand (and then keep them running so it isn't a repeated expense).

comment using mod_fcgid instead of mod_cgi
mod_cgi or mod_php? You changed your mind between typing the question and entering the details.

comment is there any program that can send emails from localhost
You can't (reasonably) send email without using SMTP (what do you think sendmail does?!) - and you do need to have a proper SMTP server on a sane host, email coming from the ip addresses that ISPs will tend to assign you tend to get flagged as "Probably spam from someone infected with a Trojan".

Yes, I thought I implied it in my answer, but it is good to be specific.

comment Please Recommend a good book on Web Servers
Since the implementation (HTTP) is what a webserver does. I'm not sure what is wrong with the books you've found.

comment why i cannot access my website with its ipaddress. but only with sitename. Is this common?
Based on the default site for the IP and a reverse DNS lookup, it looks like the server is used for shared hosting. This behaviour is normal for cheap hosting.

Almost certainly (and some people do).

comment how to use cron job
It depends on the UI you are using. Since you mention a control panel, you aren't using the standard one.

comment Got Hacked. Want to understand how
@gaoshan88 — more helpful then you might think. One attack vector is a Trojan that sniffs passwords from developers' ftp clients.

comment How do you create a virtual directory in Mac Snow Leopard?
What is "the server admin tool for the web"? I can think of several webbased Apache configuration tools.

500 Internal Server Error means "Look in the server error log". What does it say?

comment What is a Servlet Container and how to install one?
Yes, but if you are at the VPS stage, then presumably you are at the "if it breaks we have real problems" stage.

comment What is a Servlet Container and how to install one?
If I was at the stage where I was paying for a VPS (rather than an internal development system) then I'd want someone who knew what they were doing on the team rather then depending on my learning as I went along.

comment Tool to download only selective pages / particular page from a document !
If we continue to use the example of ODT files - that would require that masses of information be duplicated. It would prevent zip compression being used. So in an effort to save bandwidth when downloading part of a file, you end up making the entire file much, much larger. This is counterproductive.

comment Tool to download only selective pages / particular page from a document !
"The servers job is to just to go the particular offset and start sending the data with its knowledge in file formats." - as mentioned, there is no offset. The formats are NOT linear. The data needed to build any given fragment of a file is usually scattered throughout the file (unless it is a format designed explicitly for network seeking, such as most video formats used on the Internet).
