this is "expected behaviour" ... well, it may be a bug if you didn't see
this before apache 1.3.20.

a bunch of configuration info is duplicated for each <VirtualHost>.  i
forget all the exact details now, but what you want to be careful about
are any configuration statements within the <VirtualHost> which modify the
global configuration of a module.  i.e. each time you modify something
locally to a vhost you create a duplicate of the global config.

btw, make sure you don't have an srm.conf or access.conf.  they get
completely duplicated in each vhost.

apache 2.0 doesn't change anything in this respect.

it's likely you want to look at mod_vhost_alias.

actually this makes me think you may be looking at a genuine bug... if you
can reproduce this problem with a "trivial" server config, such as the
high-performance.conf (see the source tarball) with a few added
<VirtualHost> sections that each contain nothing ... then it's probably a

if that doesn't do it, then try adding things to the virtualhost sections
until you see what causes it to bloat up.

please report back :)
