Subject Failing startup for vhost configuration problems
Date Tue, 03 Aug 2010 12:05:28 GMT
I'd like to propose that in 2.3/2.4, we fail startup for any of the
virtual host misconfigurations for which behavior is undefined but right
now we only issue a warning.

E.g. no VirtualHosts matching a NameVirtualHost, overlapping
VirtualHosts, use of _default_ in NameVirtualHost, mixing * and non-*
ports in name-based virtual hosts.

The rationale is that these configurations are unsupported, the behavior
is undefined, and presumably they are the result of errors, so better to
make sure the admin corrects the error than to continue and probably not
behave as the admin expects.  

A new major version seems like a good time for a change like this.
