By some odd method, you have managed to defeat the automatic
signature-adding feature of this list. This is a pity because it

Subject: [users@httpd] Apache Server Farm

In the near future, I plan to convert about 200 MS/IIS web servers to
RedHat/Apache.  I have one fundamental question, and I wanted to tap
into your wisdom.  
With respect to managing 200 apache installations, I see a few
Compile source on each server 
Compile source on master server and copy out to all servers (all servers
are the same hardware, but 90% have 2 CPU's and 10% have 1 CPU) 
Use an RPM (standard? or build a custom RPM?) 
Some other method 
I'm sure there are methods I haven't thought of so please feel free to
add to the list.  I've built a prototype server for which I compiled the
apache source.  I didn't experience any nasty errors, so this has me
thinking that with some simple scripts it wouldn't be too difficult to
manage 200 installations.  The server is very basic (no SSL, CGI,
etc...just mod_jk and very little static content).
Perhaps some of you with a large apache install base can share your
experiences and why you think one method is better than another.
Thanks in advance for your input
