I need to make the most of apache in that, I have a system setup that has about 12 domains going to 1 IP on a shared server, I need in the root directory to have an .htaccess file that basically does this:

if the hostname = www.domain1.com
then the content comes from /domain1.com
if the hostname = www.domain2.com
then the content comes from /domain2.com

but here is the issue, i want to make it so that always in the Address bar in the browser it always shows as that the visitor is in the base directory

like if the visit www.domain1.com and want the file terms.php
using standard redirection would show http://www.domain1.com/domain1.com/terms.php
but I need it to show http://www.domain1.com/terms.php


Any ideas anyone, I know this is possible as I have seen it before, but dont know how it was done

the primary reason, is that I dont own the server, and two that all the sites need to use the same basic backend system, although the other parts are entirely different such as the static content

You still can use virtual hosts in this case.
eg, maintain diferent "Document Root" for each virtual host (domain), use  "symbolic link"
to point to the common area (dir), and put the customized contents under the "Document Root".

As I mentioned before I do not own the server to have access to the httpd.conf file or even making the different doc roots
