Subject [users@httpd] Virtual Sites IP Distinguishing
Date Thu, 06 Jul 2006 04:39:24 GMT
Hi All,

when you have x amount of virtual sites on the one machine and all of 
the domains point to the same IP in DNS, how does apache distinguish 
which site the request is for? Is it something in the payload section 
from the upper layer of the frame that comes in? I understnad that DNS 
resolves the domain name to an IP so is the domain name maintained in 
the payload?
