It Works! No It Doesn't!

Not sure why this is but in Apache 2.2, I had "NameVirtualHost *:80" in the httpd-vhosts.conf file. This was seemingly randomly making the virtualhosts point through to the htdocs root. Updating this to "NameVirtualHost localhost:80" has fixed the issue.

Not sure what the cause is, just glad to see the back of it. Retweet this button on every post blogger
