I think you are talking about a redirect(I'm still learning all this stuff) if I do that then the domains won't be available on the production machine anymore or? This is bad if something goes wrong on the testmachine...I have to move over 100 domains copying files and MySql databases so it might take some time and possible even some reinstalls if I mess something up. After the 100 domains are setup on the new server I give my ISP the goahead and they move the A records over to my new machine and kill the old box.
So now you see why I have to manually mess with the vhost files.
