There are several ways of having virtual web servers with Apache
and different decisions to be made:
- name based servers vs. IP based servers
- one instance of Apache for all virtual servers vs. different
instances for each web server
- single binary vs. different binaries for each server
To get something like Netscape Enterprise Server was, you should
use different IP based instances with different startup/shutdown files
and different configuration files; depending on your configuration,
create a separate copy of the startup/shutdown and configuration
separate directory structures for your data & logs, separate accounts
so on; you can share one single binary for all instances or have
different ones with different modules, depending on your needs;
in the startup files, you select the binary and configuration file
for the virtual server; these servers are independent from each other;
