    Very Nice Document Really Appreciated. And you are the first girl I have seen in the Linux Admin side.

    I find one mistake there are 3 types of virtual hosting
    1) Name Based
    2) Ip Based
    3) Port Based

    For Rosehosting answer is:

    I think your question is not web servers it’s websites if yes so here is the answer

    In Ip based we can configure multiple websites with the concept of virtual hosting.

    Also we can configure multiple websites with single ip but the traffic will hit to the single ip so if you have multiple ip address then that would be better.


  7. RoseHosting says:

    Can we have two Apache Web servers on a single machine?

    If you have two different IP addresses, one Apache installation can listen to port 80 on the first IP address, and the second Apache installation to port 80 on the second IP address.

    I enjoyed reading the article, keep up the good work :-)

    Just one over-sight:
    Under the last section “How SSL works with Apache” it looks like you’ve outlined how to generate an SSL certificate, rather than how Apache handles HTTPS requests.
