Flattening Project

+ ## page was renamed from Recipes/Different UserIDs Using Reverse Proxy
  One frequently requested feature is to run different virtual hosts under different userids.
 Unfortunately, due to the basic nature of unix permission handling, this is impossible. 
(Although it is possible to run CGI scripts under different userids using suexec or cgiwrap.)
 You can, however, get the same effect by running multiple instances of Apache httpd and using
a reverse proxy to bring them all into the same name space.
  This same technique can also be useful if you want certain virtual hosts to be run under
a non-threaded server (prefork) while others run with threading (worker or event).
