Re: Multiple instances
Yep, I relent. I got a bit too enthusiastic with that response.
However, as far as I know there is currently no way short
of using different sockets for different registered services
to use two or more different web servers. One probably
could write a daemon for inetd to select the "appropriate"
server based upoon some other criteria such as domain of the
incomming request but as far as I know nothing like that
I don't quite agree with your statement that a web server
is like an editor but that could very was be more my own
ignorance than a fact based opinion. With the exception of
using a different socket the situation with web servers
looks a lot more like MTAs than editor to me.
