Title: 2 sites? possible?
Post by: dhardy123 on November 08, 2004, 07:24:40 PM
Hi,

I've been using the Apache, php, mysql install for a few months.

I installed a few portals and CMS's to test their functionality and now the other stuff ive written doesnt work anymore....


is it possible to install another version of apache2, mysql, php, etc in a completely different area of the computer? like a different directory, etc?

will there be problems if 2 instances of apache are running?

etc
etc

Please advise.

Thanks

Its possible, but not advisable.

running 2 diferent installs of apache will result in
4 process,
1 parent + 1 child with a lot of thread x 2
process are expensive things to run!

it would be more efficient to run i version off apache with 2 vhost(document roots could point to totaly different location.

look here for some more information
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/

Thanks for the replies

Im not sure if running 2 different vhosts would solve it because for some reason apache seems to be unstable....i get a:

Child process exited with status 3221225477 - Restarting

message each time I do anything...i never got this message before...

I guess I could do a complete reinstall....

would it be easier to reinstall apache and php only, or the entire package again?

Im assuming that if I did the entire package then I would need to save all of my programs and databases somewhere else first...would I export all the Mysq databases or if I uninstall they wont be touched?

TIA

Follow the un-installations details under the manual-install Instructions.  Re-install the package.  Save what you need, or (after stopping and un-installing the Apache2 and MySQL services) just rename the 'www' structure to 'www-old', before continuing.
