comment Configuring Nginx for Wordpress and Rails
Can you give us some more information about your directory structure. It would be most common to see something like: location /blog {} AND location / {} To differentiate the two different apps. Also see, stackoverflow.com/questions/89504/…

If the OP is seeing the PHP source in a downloaded file from the URL then it's reaching the correct VHOST.

comment Apache: How can I make my localhost on 192.168.1.101 visible from 192.168.1.102?
If you've posted your entire apache.conf you've got a real problem. That looks more like a vhost.conf file.

comment Lighttpd: requesting local URLs via PHP
Your PHP may not be 'custom' but there are a number of standard options which may limit what you can fopen and curl from PHP. You say the box can WGET from the CLI but not from PHP so that rules out DNS / ROUTING / Firewalls. I'd try creating a new test.php file that contains the bare minimum to prove your case, then, run it from the PHP-CLI (ie using PHP but not MOD_APACHE). PHP-CLI can be given a command line option to suppress php.ini. I'm fairly sure I could sort your problem in 10 minutes with some hands-on troubleshooting, it's just hard via SO.

comment Lighttpd: requesting local URLs via PHP
It must be related to your php.ini settings; did you re-use your old php.ini from your previous install or is this a new setup.

comment My SMTP's outgoing mail gets bounced
But what makes it generic; if he changes his FQDN to the that of the reverse IP, he won't have a non-resolvable domain name reported by his MTA (unless he's purposefully done that, in which case nothing will help him).
