Subject RE: [users@httpd] best practices - <virtualhosts> section or not?
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 14:55:41 GMT
Thank you very much for your excellent reply.  Glad to
hear it is not at all unusual to not use VHs for the
main/default site. I agree, adding additional hosts
would definately require the use of VH blocks, unless
each one would get their own httpd.conf and run as a
seperate instance.
