	We basically do approach1, however you will also need to make a copy of the binary if you
truly want separate daemons.

Subject: [users@httpd] Diffeerent Apache Daemon on RHEL5.1

Hi All,
I would like to create different apache2.2.8 daemon on RHEL5.1 so that they can be started
and stopped without affecting each other. I do the same on windows by creating IP based virtual
server as different daemon. To achieve the same on RHEL5.1 I considered the following two
appraoches. I am incliend towards approach 1. Please suggest if approach 1 is better suited
over approach 2. Any comment ? risks ?
Approach - 1 (Virtual Servers having same IP Address but with different hostnames and port
Step 1 - Edit host file with different hostname (daemon) with same IP Address
             Like - -
               - .... Till n number
of daemon.
            For each virtual server configuration            
Step 2 - Create a new server root folder like /usr/App/Apa1
Step 3 - Copy conf, htdocs and logs from existing main Apache build path (/usr/App/Apa) to
Step 4 - Edit httpd.conf file under /usr/App/Apa1/conf as mentioned in the steps below 
a.       ServerName
b.       Listen 90
c.       DocumentRoot "/usr/App/Apa1/htdocs"
d.       <Directory "/usr/App/Apa1/htdocs">
e.       ServerRoot "/usr/App/Apa1"
Step 5 - Edit httpd-ssl.conf under /usr/App/Apa1/conf/extra as following - 
a.       <VirtualHost _default_:636>
b.       ServerName
c.       Listen 636
d.       DocumentRoot "/usr/App/Apa1/htdocs"
Repeat step 2 to 5 for any additional virtual servers (/usr/App/Apa2.....n) with different
host/server name, server root and ports
Approach - 2 (Virtual Servers having different IP Address with different hostnames and port
Step 1 - Create different virtual host with different IP Address
Step 2 - Follow the steps 2 to 5 in Approach - 1
