Creating Simple Virtual Hosts With mod_mysql_vhost On Lighttpd (Debian Etch)
Posted on: 08/07/2008 12:03 PM

Howtoforge posted a guide about creating simple virtual hosts with mod_mysql_vhost on Lighttpd under Debian GNU/Linux 4.0

This guide explains how you can use mod_mysql_vhost to create simple virtual hosts on a lighttpd web server on Debian Etch. With mod_mysql_vhost, lighttpd can read the vhost configuration from a MySQL database. Currently, you can store the domain and the document root in the MySQL database which results in very simple virtual hosts. If you need more directives for your vhosts, you would have to configure them in the global section of lighttpd.conf, which means they would be valid for all vhosts. Therefore, mod_mysql_vhost is ideal if your vhosts differ only in the domain and document root.
