Dual Apache Servers

Ok, here is what I am looking for. I want to have two apache servers runnings (One as the usual one whihc anybody can connect to and the other as a test server to test new websites before they go online). Is it possibile to have two instances of apache running (I am running it on Redhat 9) at the same time to get my desired outcome? if so, how can I go about doing it?

Thanks People

Assuming you haven't tried this..... Create a new virtual server within apache, running off a different port if necessary, or simply run from a homedir (webaddress/~username), rather than the normal webaddress.

You can play about with the new virtual server without affecting the other one.

Webmin ( will make your life easier - it's a browser-based server management tool.
