Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.0 Secure and non secure server
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2005 21:10:24 GMT
To bring the secure server down on one instance would the easiest way
be commenting out
#llisten 443 and then issuing a "apachectl graceful", and Vice versa
for port 80?
Can one instance have Vitural Server Hosting on port 80 but not on the
Secure Server?
Also it might be a nightmare to configure PHP on two separate
instances, if you have the servers installed under different users.
