Subject Re: [users@httpd] Disable custom modules for a specific directory in my web server
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2013 18:08:14 GMT
Hello Chris,

Not sure how well it would work for your particular situation, given the
embedded nature, but one approach to this may be to run 2 completely
separate apache instances.

This is often done on servers to distinguish between lightweight and
heavy content: eg. have one stripped down apache for serving images and
static HTML and another one for heavy dynamic content such as mod_perl.

The main downside is that you would need to bind them to either separate
IP addresses or separate ports. eg. have your heavy server bound to and the lighter, faster one to You can even
proxy from the lighter to the heavier if it all needs to appear as
a single IP/port combo from the outside. They could have completely
different configurations or share as much or as little as required.
