How do I tangle txt to a txt file?

#+TITLE:  Centos 5 Apache Configuration
#+AUTHOR: David Coate

* Basic Conguration
* Php Settings
* Virtual Host
   e.g.  for apache configuration
** example.com
     Use this as main website, use drupal,  various other notes

#+BEGIN_SRC: txt :tangle vhost.conf
ServerName Example.com
DocumentRoot "/var/www/example.com"
#+END_SRC:

** companyb.com
     notes about company b.
#+BEGIN_SRC: txt :tangle vhost.conf
ServerName Companyb.com
DocumentRoot "/var/www/companyb.com"
#+END_SRC:

... and so on for 40 more web sites.

I still want to be able to export this as HTML to document to others  
what i've done and use the org file to maintain the webpage and the  
source conf files.

Same issue for documenting my configuration files for postfix,  
dovecot, drupal settings, php.ini settings.

I'm sure this is easy, but searching the org manual or googling is not  
getting me the right answer.

#+BEGIN_ASCII and #+BEGIN_EXAMPLE  seem to be for exporting only and  
not tangling.

Thanks!
David

I don't know if this is the "right" way, but I just pretend my files are 
shell scripts:

* Dovecot.
** dovecot.conf
#+BEGIN_SRC sh :tangle 
~/dropbox/configuration_files/wilkesley.org/dovecot/dovecot.conf 
:exports none :noweb yes
protocols = imap sieve
ssl = yes
ssl_cert = </etc/ssl/certs/mail2.wilkesley.net.crt
ssl_key = </etc/ssl/private/mail2.wilkesley.net.key

Ian.

It is actually just a syntax problem, you should delete the ":"s after
your begin and end src lines so the above becomes

#+BEGIN_SRC txt :tangle vhost.conf
ServerName Example.com
DocumentRoot "/var/www/example.com"
#+END_SRC

Then tangling should work as expected.  You'd be surprised how long it
took me to notice the colons :).  One good way to solve these sorts of
issues is using the built in templates, e.g., type "<s" at the beginning
of a line and then press TAB.

Best,
