I have a directory in my document root "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs"
named private_party. I need to create a new vertual host with the name www.private_party.com that uses the private_party directory and add PHP support for the www.private_party.com virtual host. I don't know how to configure the directory and to add the handlers correctly. This is what I have tried so far.

#
# the virtual host private_party
#

   <VirtualHost *>
        ServerName www.private_party.com
        DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs"
      Options -FollowSymLinks -ExecCGI -Includes
      ErrorLog logs/private_party.com-error_log
      CustomLog logs/private_party.com-access_log common
      ScriptAlias  "c:/php/"
   </VirtualHost>
What should it be and do I need code for any other part of my httpd.conf

Here is my URL my default is:
 <VirtualHost *>
      ServerName localhost.com
      DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs/"
   </VirtualHost>


http://localhost/private_party/test.php


everything else works using html extension, i.e.   http://localhost/private_party/index.html 
just not php extensions

I want to use php as my cgi
Here is what I have changed or added on my httpd.conf, should I change, delete, or add anything else. I am not experienced with this at all. I am trying to work from books and a cd tutorial and php is not working for me. Please tell me where to make any changes in the file.

ServerRoot "C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2"

 
DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs"

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.cgi default.htm default.html index.phtml index.php

AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php .phtml
AddType application/x-httpd-php "/php-exe-location/php.exe"
ScriptAlias /php-exe-location/ "C:/PHP/"


#
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#

   NameVirtualHost *


   <VirtualHost *>
         ServerName www.private_party.com
         DocumentRoot "C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs"
       Options -FollowSymLinks -ExecCGI -Includes
       ErrorLog logs/private_party.com-error_log
       CustomLog logs/private_party.com-access_log common
   </VirtualHost>
