comment How do I stop Soft 404 errors from piling up for “No Results” page?
@Calmarius - Yes, they do. I recall a Google Product Forum thread about a site that had Amazon cart fillers. You'd input a dollar amount that you would need to get to a specific amount (say to qualify for free shipping) and the site would list products that cost exactly that amount. You could enter "viagra" into this box and it would get some sort of default page with a list of products. This was a problem for the spam team at Google.

comment Domain not accessing correct files in apache2 virtual hosts
Try making your Directory directive match your document root. <Directory /var/www/domain.com/public_html/> instead of <Directory /var/www/>

comment My Server is returning a 404 instead of 403 when access if forbidden - is it good or bad?
301 redirecting won't work properly for error documents. That would cause the HTTP status to be 301 (redirect) rather than 403. ErrorDocument directives can be overridden, so putting in a second with the desired path would fix the problem better.
