2 apache instances


Hi everybody!

I'm new to redhat and d'like to know, how to install 2 independent instances of apache (one with tomcat, the other one with php). I know that tomcat and php can run on the same instance, but it is a requirement of a customer.

Can I do this with rpm? Or do I have to compile the webserver with to different /prefix=?

Thank you very much.
Frederik

Get the tarball distribution of apache [rpm will be looking for the same location].

And install in two different locations.
That will not be very difficult,you will have to change the configuration file before installing to set u`r installation path.

Why do you have to have two seperate apache binarys installed? Why can't you just run the same binary twice with different options? Or am I missing something....

Ok that must be possible.

But you will have to tweak a bit isnt it?

Can you try this

Install apache through rpm

Copy the initialization file [/etc/init.d/httpd ] and in that change the configuration file $CONFFILE to point to some other new conf file you have created ]

The new conf file must have the port changed.

In my case it was
Listen 0.0.0.0:80

Change the port address to some other unused value.


Now try starting both

/etc/init.d/httpd
/etc/init.d/httpdnew

Httpd must run as two instances.

Note:
This may have problems like lock file created by the exe, pid file etc.But its worth a try.

Guys, thank you for your support!

Although the solution of Samoth is very interesting I should run two completly (maybe with different version in the future) apaches. So I try to install them into seperate directories. Does anyone know the rpm parameter for this (sorry, comming from gentoo; we use ebuilds not rpm packages ;-)).

If you are going to try and install apache into two directories try building the rpm from source using a .src.rpm and "rpmbuild". You can usually pass PREFIX parameters to it.
