Subject Re: [PATCH] vhost hostname in scoreboard not useful when using
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2000 21:57:41 GMT
Yeah.... only ServerName is used since there are no VirtualHost
wrapper structures being constructed... I'd rather not resort to
string copies for each request. If one is using mod_vhost_alias
it's because (usually) they have a lot of vhosts or want a
simpler conf file or want on-the-fly activation, with the
end goal being a leaner faster server. And string copies don't
help that :)
