Subject [users@httpd] Best way to include thousands of vhosts
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2003 10:12:20 GMT

i am looking for the most resource friendly way of including *lots* of 
virtual hosts. They all share the same DocumentRoot and other settings,
just the hostname is different.
I could have an VirtualHost entry for all of them, which would make
reading the .conf file slow (option A)
I could have, within one VirtualHost, a ServerAlias list with space
limited hostnames, but i dont know the limits of it. What is the maximum 
line length of the .conf file? What is the maximum number of hostnames i
could append at the ServerAlias directive?
Or should i just make a VirtualHost on the ip addres and have it as first
entry, so all not configured hostnames will default to that?
(most probably that is the answer, but i would still like to know the
limits of .conf files in the question above.
