what about having different versions of Apache installed
on the same machine?

I have been using this for a long time as incremental
migration path for my Apache installations.
My httpd.conf is nothing but a two-liner, setting the
"port" and including the rest of the configuration -
thus I can run two Apaches on different posts with the
same configuration, no need to maintain duplicates, test
as I like, and then switch the port numbers as soon as
I trust the new version.
This worked fine for a number of versions, but about the
time when Apache switched to the MSI installation type
it didn't allow me to install different Apache versions
any more (1.3.17 or 19, don't recall it exactly).
I have still Apache 1.3.14 and 1.3.26 running on the
same machine (and no, Virtual Hosting wouldn't do the
trick for me ... I am running a web application on one
of these that believes Apache is hers and automatically
rewrites the configuration to her needs, and I need to
be able to re-run this installation procedure any time),
but Apache wouldn't allow me to do this with, let's say,
1.3.26 and 1.3.27 (on WinNT4 as Admin user, in my case).

Would this work again with 2.0? Would it at least work
for one 1.3 and one 2.0 version, as to ease migration?

Regards, Michael
