How is YOUR virtual hosting set up?

Hi all-

I've been running a single GL install on a dedicated server for a while now, and I am looking to host multiple GL sites on said server using virtual hosts.

I'm curious if anyone who is already doing this would be so kind as to take a moment to describe their setup and offer any pointers? Config files, directory structure, db structure, etc.

Thanks!
Alex

Your post deeply concerns me just because if somebody posts their detials they could potentially be comprimising their infrastructure. Here is what I will tell you, rather than have somebody give you a solution you will be much better off to figure out one on your own as it will make you a much stronger sys admin. The first time I built my own OpenBSD based firewall it took me 40 hours, when the disk died and I had to rebuild it I was able to accomplish this is in 45 minutes because I understood why and how I implemented the solution.

To point you in the right direction are some links to the software I use, if you have specific questions on how to accomplish certain tasks like setting up virtual hosts or SSL please feel free to ask.

I know that you have to be using the last three to run geeklog but it is sort of a polite RTFM.

Apparently, I should have clarified. I'm just looking for "Geeklog Hosting Best Practices".

Notice that I didn't say "Tell me your exact setup along with your IP address and the passwords you use, muhuhahahaha."

I don't care if "my post deeply concerns you", if someone is dumb enough to actually post that kind of sensitive information, then they deserve what they get.

I don't have even the slightest desire to go and hack someone else's install, especially when I am trying to figure out my own.

Thanks for nothing,
Alex

OK the quick vhost tutorial:

This assumes apache2 on SUSE:

go to: /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/
read the files marked "template".
Change the values and save as vhosts.conf

you're done.
