Subject name-based vhosts
Date Sun, 17 Nov 2002 23:03:33 GMT
I've encountered quite a bit of confusion lately about whether it is
possible to run different name-based vhosts on each of several IP
addresses on a single machine. Clearly, this stems mostly from a lack of
understanding of DNS stuff, as do many, many of the vhost problems that
people have. But, anyways, do you think this phrasing change is
accurate? It felt a little awkward, so I didn't go ahead and commit it.
