Hello Guys,

I am in the middle of an ip scheme migration and I would like to do it without any downtime. How do I configure Apache to listen to two ip addresses? Traffic comming in on both ip addresses should show the same website. I know I will have to configure virtual ip addresses with `ifconfig` but I am iffy on the Apache configs. Thanks in advance.

If you didn't specify any 'Listen' directives in
the httpd.conf (Apache 1.3) or only specified a port
in the Listen directive (Apache 1.3 and 2.0), Apache
should do a wildcard listen,
i.e. listen on all addresses of the box.

If you want to make is listen to specific addresses,
use the 'Listen' directive. See the docs for that
directive at:
