Try setting the configuration for each virtual host instead using the


<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName my-mono-site.com
  ServerAdmin web-admin at my-mono-site.com
  DocumentRoot /srv/www/my-mono-site.com
*  MonoServerPath my-mono-site.com "/usr/bin/mod-mono-server2"
  MonoSetEnv my-mono-site.com MONO_IOMAP=all
  MonoApplications my-mono-site.com "/:/srv/www/my-mono-site.com"
*  <Location "/">
    Allow from all
    Order allow,deny
*    MonoSetServerAlias my-mono-site.com*
*    SetHandler mono*
    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
    SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI "\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$" no-gzip dont-vary
  <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml
