Linux w/ Apache - Bind / chroot idea - need fast help!

Last Modified: 2010-04-20
I am running a dedicated web server w/ Linux & Apache.  I am trying to setup a way to give each IP address on my box their own minimal version of files such as httpd.conf, passwd, etc. so that each IP is for the MOST part, it's own entity, even if it shares the hard drive with 20 others.

My initial idea is to somehow bind each service to a single IP and have any login services chrooted before they check the passwd file.

Apache should be easily configurable by setting the BindAddress option in the httpd.conf to an IP.

I am looking for someone who can help me set this up pronto... If the points aren't enough, web hosting or website submission services are easily available for compensation....

Please contact via email if you have the time to help me set this up... I need something working right away!
