Subject config variables on virtual hosts
Date Sun, 28 May 1995 22:25:28 GMT

I had a request to allow the httpd.h-defined "User" and "Group" variables 
to be settable per virtual host - I suppose this would be good for ISP's 
which allow virtual hosts for their clients and want to allow them to 
configure everything without hurting the other users.  In fact, it would 
seem to make sense to me to allow *everything* to be settable per virtual 
host.  Does that make sense?  If so, what if we rearranged it such that 
instead of a <VirtualHost> config option, we had something like a 
virtual.conf, with hostnames/IP numbers pointing to different httpd.h's 
(which themselves could point to other srm.conf's and access.conf's).  
For reasons of memory allocation and legacy data structures it might mean 
running a separate root-level httpd for each virtual host, it would seem 
to me.... but if not, it would be really nice.  Furthermore, most sites 
I've worked on run more than one server (like organic and wired), one 
public and usually two or three internal ones.  This could be used as a 
way to consolidate that... thoughts?
