Subject RE: [users@httpd] Windows, Apache and an ASP Module
Date Thu, 23 Jun 2005 11:30:19 GMT
I really need to build the entire website again in php but I don't have the
time, any additions can be in php and I will slowly migrate the site over.

I installed the proxy and proxy httm module in apache and set it up to
forward requests, this seems to work well although I imagine it is fording
all the requests. 
Is there anyway to define the directory where the site is stored as a
virtual host and only get it to proxy asp pages back?
