Ok...did that.

-----a snippet of the httpd.conf file------
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ "/home/springpark/cgi-bin/"
        <Directory /home/springpark/public_html/wiki>
        LimitRequestBody 16000000

-----end of snippet---

209.x.x.x - springpark [13/May/2005:15:12:04 -0500] "POST
/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=BOARD.2005may-landscape HTTP/1.0" 302 249
209.x.x.x - springpark [13/May/2005:15:12:20 -0500] "GET
HTTP/1.0" 200 22349
----end log-----

oh.. .and I *DID* do an apachectl restart before attempting the re-post.
so ..the issue  here is maybe what??  Don't put the directory directive
inside the virtualhost directive?

Any clues?
