I am searching a way go get the $OTHER_VHOSTS feature that lets the users use their proper domain name with their journal work.
BUT, when I activate this, all the pages of my lj-site get 404-errors. I have searching in the archives of lj_everywhere and lj_dev and I have seen several people getting the exactly same problem but who didn't found any solution to this problem.

So, I have searched what is the part of the code that manage this and I have found that it is /cgi-bin/Apache/ who manage this through this code:

I suppose there is a special modification to make this work? As LiveJournal use it without any problem?

Thanks to help me/us ^^
